This is more of a tech question for Accordance Sales, but I don't find a list of the authors of this set -- like who wrote the commentary on Romans? Does this set follow the old Interpreter's Bible method of having two commentaries on everything:
1) Exposition,
2) Exegesis (more technical)?

As I recall the Exposition & Exegesis could be written by different authors.

1. Open up File/New/ReferenceTool/New Interpreter's Bible OT
2. Show the Table of Content on the left by clicking on the icon in the top left.
3. Scroll down to see the Contributors section, among many other really high quality articles that should NOT be overlooked:
 
* Features of the New Interpreter's Bible
* Editorial Board
* Contributors
* Volume One
    - Introduction to the New Interpreter's Bible
    - How We Got Our Bible
    - How the Bible is Read, Interpreted and Used
    - The Background of the Old Testament Texts

 

You will see in the Features… article, that this edition has a single author write the Exegesis and the Interpretation.

After selecting some text you can always go to the edit menu and copy as citation...

 

The death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah form the initial disclosure of God’s righteousness, the major apocalpytic event that burst upon an unsuspecting world and an uncomprehending Israel; now the apocalypse happens again, every time the message about Jesus is announced, as God’s righteousness is unveiled before another audience.

 
N.T. Wright, “The Letter to the Romans,” in The Acts of the Apostles-The First Letter to the Corinthians, vol. 10 of The New Interpreter’s Bible. Accordance electronic ed. (Nashville: Abingdon Press, 2002), 424.
 
Which will (should) always bring up the author of the section you are copying. Each author is also listed at the start of each section***.
 
THE LETTER TO THE ROMANS
  INTRODUCTION, COMMENTARY, AND REFLECTIONS
BY
N. T. WRIGHT
 
-Dan
*** I said section because there are articles and the book of Isaiah is done by two scholars 1-39 and then 40-66.

On multi-author works there will also be an Authors field. Search "?*" in that field and you can scroll through the hits to see who wrote what. (in the case where there isn't a lovely Contributors section, like, say, commentary set like WBC, NICOT, etc.)

Thanks to you all for the responses.

However, I do not own this module I was thinking about purchase & wanted to know about the authors of the commentaries on each book.  On the Accordance site I did not find a list of the authors for each Bible book.

Thanks so very much.

 

I had been thinking that I wanted to add some RCC commentaries to my library, but I see that there is not that much in this set (aside from apocrypha).  For this set I wish I could buy just Walter Kaiser.  I note that they don't seem to have an article of Reading the Bible as a man of Norman Ancestry.

For "Reading the Bible as a man of Norman Ancestry", you can just see all English commentaries and articles from 1850 to 1980.

There are notable Catholic scholars outside the Apocrypha... Like  Luke Johnson (James), O'Conner (Lamentations), Shuller (Malachi) Yee (Hosea), and Pheme Perkins (Gospel of Mark)...

 

Some of the best of this series include both halves of Isaiah, Leviticus (really i find all 3 of Volume one extremely strong). Psalms, Mark John, Romans, Hebrews, and i do find all of it good and solid and as I have said elsewhere this series constantly punches above it weight.

You missed the point altogether;

That would be reading the Bible like Norman Rockwell. (Thumbnail of Saturday Evening Revue.)

If you're interested in Roman Catholic commentaries, I would recommend Berit Olam/Sacra Pagina, originally published by Liturgical Press. They represent some of the finest in contemporary Catholic biblical scholarship. Although they aren't available in Accordance, they're available in Logos.

Thanks much, Matthew.

 

Strange, but when I searched both Amazon & Logos.com I got no results for this.  Maybe I am not searching correctly.

 

But then when I tried again at Logos, just searching for Berit Olam, I found this:

 

"Berit Olam: Studies in Hebrew Narrative & Poetry (13 vols.)

The authors reflect a variety of religious traditions, professional backgrounds, and theoretical approaches. "

 

So you are saying then that some of the volumes are RCC?  I don't know what kind of publisher Liturgical Press is (tho I guess it must be liturgical!)  Also, at first glance I am in doubt as to just what this set is; it is laid out by Bible book (looks like OT only), but I am not sure that these volumes are verse by verse Bible commentaries???

 

Liturgical Press says it has not got the nihil obstat. "this series does not include an imprimatur."  Yet is not Liturgical Press the publishing arm of some religious order?

 

I am wondering if this is kind of a devotional, rather than a grammatical study series.

 

Amazon does sell at least some of the volumes (found by searching just for Berit Olam."

Berit Olam is a series of Old Testament commentaries, and Sacra Pagina coves the New Testament. The latter is complete. I am not sure about the OT. They are separate series. Liturgical Press publishes a variety of books in different categories.

I have previously requested Sacra Pagina in Accordance. Others have too.

So you are saying then that some of the volumes are RCC?

 

 

I suppose that depends on your definition of a Roman Catholic commentary. Liturgical Press is a Roman Catholic publisher (founded by St. John's Abbey, a Benedictine community in Collegeville, MN), and most, if not all, of the contributors are Roman Catholic (I'm not familiar with every author's background). Many are ordained members of religious orders. 

 

As Michael indicated, Sacra Pagina (the New Testament portion of the series) is complete; Berit Olam (the Old Testament portion) is virtually complete. Although the series many not be as exhaustive in its analysis as Hermeneia or Anchor Yale Bible, its perspective is much more academic than devotional; all of the volumes I've used were written from historical-critical or form-critical perspectives.

From the back of the dust cover of Sacra Pagina: "This series presents fresh translations and modern expositions of all the books of the New Testament. Written by an international team of Catholic biblical scholars, it is intended for biblical professionals, graduate students, theologians, clergy, and religious educators."

 

Many of the authors are members of religious orders (the series editor was the late Jesuit scholar, Daniel Harrington), but some are laity. It is solid in scholarship, but as Matthew notes, the volumes are not as exhaustive as Hermeneia or Anchor Yale.

 

I am not as familiar with Berit Olam. From the dust cover of 1 Kings: "The authors reflect a variety of religious traditions, professional backgrounds, and theoretical approaches. Yet they share a common desire to make available to all of God's people the words of the everlasting covenant in all their beauty." That particular volume is written by Jerome T. Walsh, a secular priest, using a narrative critical approach.
