Based on the original twelve-volume set that has become a staple in college and seminary libraries and pastors' studies worldwide, this new thirteen-volume edition of The Expositor's Bible Commentary series once again gathers the most current evangelical scholarship and resources. Its fifty-six contributors, thirty of whom are new, represent the best in evangelical scholarship committed to the divine inspiration, complete trustworthiness, and full authority of the Bible. The thoroughly revised features include: * Comprehensive introductions * Short and precise bibliographies * Detailed outlines * Insightful expositions of passages and verses * Overviews of sections of Scripture to illuminate the big picture * Occasional reflections to give more detail on important issues * Notes on textual questions and special problems, placed close to the texts in question * Transliterations and translations of Hebrew and Greek words, enabling readers to understand even the more technical notes * A balanced and respectful approach toward marked differences of opinion CONTRIBUTORS ?
