WBC Set Formerly published by Thomas Nelson. Now published by Zondervan, a division of HarperCollins Publishing.

The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day. 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.

  • 3/17/12 Update: Individual volumes are now available, as well as the OT and NT sets. Multiple volumes for a single book are combined.
  • 9/1/15 Update: Several volumes have been added/revised. New offerings are listed below.
  • 11/19/16 Update: Volume on Colossians/Philemon was removed at Publisher's request.

This set does not contain volumes for Acts or 1 Corinthians as they are still unpublished volumes. The volume on Colossians/Philemon is also unavailable as it was removed at Publisher's request.

The publisher has required us to remove the following superseded (original) volumes from the new sets: Joshua, Psalms 1-50, and 2 Corinthians. As a courtesy to the users of the older WBC sets, we are adding these individual original volumes to the downloads of the original sets. These will show up in the Accordance Library as individual volumes for each of these books. Even when you upgrade your sets and remove the old sets from the Library, you can download the original volumes and continue to access them (in addition to the new updated volumes). And although it is not a superseded work, the same is true for the volume on Colossians/Philemon.

See the Set History for details on specific volumes in each set.

The Accordance edition includes the following 61 volumes:
