The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

The WBC is the best-selling multi-volume commentary series in the market today. WBC authors are all experts in their field and skillfully bring the text to meaning through careful exegesis and exposition. Each WBC contributor creates his own translation based on the best texts and literature available. The WBC has the largest bibliography available.

In my mind this series offers the finest of Evangelical scholarship. as noted in Jonathan Huber's review the format can take a while to get use to, but it offers not only good sound critical commentary as well as useful/insightful Explanations. I know many prefer New International Commentary series but owning both I can say I return time and time again to WBC and rarely consult the NIC. As the preface states: "The broad stance of our contributors can rightly be called evangelical, and this term is to be understood in its positive, historic sense of a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation, and to the truth and power of the Christian gospel." This series will prove a blessing and a help to Christians and scholars from all backgrounds.

This series has triggered reviews elsewhere from people who found the format of the commentary difficult to use or the quality of the volumes somewhat uneven, but I have been very happy with it. The layout basically divides each section (such as a chapter or group of verses) into multiple parts: bibliography/translation/translation notes/form&structure/comment/explanation. This format takes a little more scrolling/page flipping, but it also keeps the material organized and is not difficult to navigate. This commentary is very detailed and somewhat technical, but it's still perfectly usable even if you don't know the original languages. Many of these volumes are outstanding (see for a comparison with other sets), and this has quickly become one of my favorite commentaries.
