Details


The Tyndale Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world’s most distinguished evangelical scholars, these forty-nine volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the Old and New Testaments.

These volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

“The aim of this series is to provide the student of the Bible with a handy, up-to-date commentary on each book, with the primary emphasis on exegesis. Major critical questions are discussed in the introductions and additional notes, while undue technicalities have been avoided.”—Donald Wiseman, from the TOTC general preface

“The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world.”—Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary

This is my go-to commentary. It covers every book of the Bible at a meaningfully detailed level, yet it's sufficiently introductory that I use it instead of a study Bible module. The overall quality of the volumes is consistently good (from my conservative, reformed , evangelical perspective) and some of the volumes are outstanding, especially in the OT. It's an exegetical commentary, not particularly devotional or pastoral, but it's not overly technical either. It makes a great companion to a more technical commentary like the WBC.

A caveat regarding this review: Providing a review of a commentary set has certain limitations given that the theological perspective of the set can cause some people to love it and others to dislike it, and in addition all commentary sets are uneven in quality.

The Tyndale Commentary set is written so that original language experience is not a requirement. As such it is useful to the layperson and the pastor/scholar/student alike. The commentary set is written from an evangelical, conservative perspective. The preface to the set states the following:

"The aim of this series of Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, as it was in the companion volumes on the New Testament, is to provide the student of the Bible with a handy, up-to-date commentary on each book, with the primary emphasis on exegesis. Major critical questions are discussed in the introductions and additional notes, while undue technicalities have been avoided."

This makes the Tyndale Commentaries especially useful as the first commentary I consult after I have finished my inductive study of the text. Specifically:

1. It is a complete set of commentaries on the OT and NT. There are only a few of the modern commentary sets that cover all the OT and NT. Having one solid set that covers the entire bible is very useful.

2. It is more detailed than a study bible, but more concise than many other exegetical commentary sets. This set does not just state the obvious, but provides insight into textual and exegetical issues without getting lost in too much detail. It is a great starting point for follow up on my own exegesis of the text.

3. It is one of the most highly rated commentaries, especially for the OT volumes. The website, best commenaries rates this set very highly, expecially the OT. This is has benefited my since my library tends to cover the NT more than the OT. There are several volumes that are rated in the top three: Numbers, Joshua (both #1), 1/2 Kings, 1/2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Daniel, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Habakkuk, Zechariah and Malachi.

4. It is especially useful in Accordance. My workspaces are set-up for easy access to this commentary open to the exact pericope I am studying.

5. The set is reasonably priced, providing excellent cost/benefit.
 
There are differing views on whether commentary sets should be purchased in paper or digitally. While I understand both sides of the discussion, having at least one commentary set that covers the entire bible in digital form is a big plus when using Accordance. The Tyndale Commentary set meets this criteria perfectly.
 
Ligonier Ministries' review of this series stated:
 
"The Tyndale Old and New Testament Commentary series is probably the most consistent commentary series available today. Most other series have some really good commentaries, some mediocre commentaries, and at least a handful of commentaries that are not very helpful at all. The volumes in the Tyndale series, on the other hand, are consistently good. The Tyndale commentary on Joshua is particularly good. Like Davis' commentary, this one is also written at an intermediate level and is accessible to all readers.
