Best commentaries

A commentary might help you study better. But how do you know what to choose?

For serious Bible study, you benefit from hearing what others say about the text. But how do you know which commentaries to buy?

Several commentators have chosen their favourites at BestCommentaries.com. Like everyone, they have their bias (Evangelical, with a Calvinistic bent), but it’s still a good indicator.

And the good news is that you’ll find many (not all) of the top commentaries for each book of the Bible on sale at Logos this month (May 2018).

Which Bible book will you study next? Pick up the commentary.

If you’ve never used a Bible commentary, it’s like having an informed friend who’s always there. They help us understand the cultural background, the historical setting, the linguistic nuances lost in in translation. They help us understand what God was saying to those people in their time, so we’re more likely to make the right application for ourselves in our time.

This blog is gradually building a free commentary on Matthew. Click Scripture Index (in the menu at the top of the page) to find the passage you want a commentary on.
