OT Commentary Series
Regarding the commentary series below:
Those identified as Introductory are the most approachable for those researching a subject in the Old Testament for the first time.
Technical commentaries can benefit all levels of students, but assume knowledge of the biblical languages and advanced methodologies (e.g., historical-, source-, form-criticism).
The series title in each case is hyperlinked. Clicking on the titles will generate a list of commentaries in that series. You can then add to the search box the name of the particular book of the Bible you want.
"Hermeneia must be regarded as the premier biblical commentary series in the English-speaking world today [....] The quality of scholarship throughout is first-rate. The Hermeneia commentaries have set a standard of excellence in biblical interpretation that future series will be hard-pressed to meet." Michael L. Barr
Published by Westminster-John Knox Press, OTL is one of the older but still important series that includes several classic 20th century German commentators in translation. Most recent volume is from 2015 on the book of Micah.
It is a full-scale series that aims to cover every book in the Bible. The series offers fresh translation, an original format, thoughtful interaction with literature, and a commitment to handle both exegetical and literary/critical concerns.
