Earlham School of Religion & Bethany Theological Seminary: Commentaries

Some questions to ask...

  • Are you looking for a homiletic commentary, an academic commentary, or another style?
  • Are you looking for a commentary from a particular perspective (womanist, conservative, eco-, queer, et cetera)?
  • Are you looking for a single volume commentary (covering the entire Bible in one or two volumes) or a multi-volume series (which usually dedicates one book to each book of the Bible)?
  • Are you looking for a commentary from a particular faith tradition (Brethren, Quaker, Lutheran, Catholic...)?
  • Are you looking for an item specifically available as a print book or eBook?
