SALE! Word Biblical Commentary (61 volumes)--$399.99

WBC Banner 01

It’s been nearly a year and a half.

Not since September 2015, has the 61-volume Word Biblical Commentary for Accordance Bible Software been on sale at such deep discounts! Now thanks to a promotion from the publisher, beginning today and running for two weeks through May 22, you can add the entire 61-volume Word Biblical Commentary to your personal Accordance Library for only $399.99.

If you do the math, that comes out to $6.54 a volume! This is an unprecedented discount, even greater than the generous publisher discount a year and a half ago. The Word Biblical Commentary has long been a bestseller for Accordance users due to its vast scope, selection of stellar contributors, and reliable exposition. If you have not yet added it to your Accordance Library, now is your chance to get it at incredible savings off the regular price!

All the writers of the Word Biblical Commentary share a “commitment to Scripture as divine revelation and to the truth and power of the Christian gospel” (all quotations in this post come from the WBC Editorial Preface). Every volume includes an original translation into English from the biblical languages. Although some level of familiarity with biblical languages is recommended for reading these volumes, the target audience is fairly broad: “the fledgling student, the working minister, and colleagues in the guild of professional scholars and teachers as well.”

Those who have used the Word series appreciate the structure and format of its treatment of biblical passages:

  • Notes: provides information about textual witnesses on which the original translation is based.
  • Bibliography & Form/Structure/Setting: summarizes the state of modern scholarship on the passage.
  • Comment & Explanation: offers “clear exposition of the passage’s meaning and its relevance to the ongoing biblical revelation.”

According to the editors, this sectioned approach is designed to offer “something for everyone who may pick up these volumes,” although it should be noted that the writers typically assume a certain level of Hebrew and Greek proficiency upon the part of the reader.

Rarely do we see the Word Biblical Commentary this affordable. As always, this promotion is at the discretion of the publisher, so there’s no guarantee of when or if the series will be discounted at this level again.

Keep in mind a few considerations about this promotion:

  1. Certainly, even at such a low price, $399.99 is not pocket change. If putting that much together in the next two weeks proves challenging, remember that we offer convenient and easy-to-manage Payment Plans.

  2. Even though we normally offer individual volumes of the Word Biblical Commentary for sale, only the entire series is available at a discount as part of this promotion from the publisher.

  3. Commentaries for Acts, 1 Corinthians, and Colossians/Philemon are not included in the 61-volume set.
