Continental Commentary - 3D We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of A Continental Commentary (20 volumes) from Fortress Press for the Accordance Library.

This series consists of 19 volumes on the biblical text (16 Old Testament and 3 New Testament) and one volume serving as an extended excursus on the theology of the Psalms. A Continental Commentary stands out as a series that offers English translations of European (primarily French and German) commentators in English. However, Jacob Milgrom, who wrote the Leviticus volume is an Israeli American.

Volumes in A Continental Commentary are fairly technical, assuming a working knowledge of biblical languages; however, any highly-motivated reader with limited biblical language experience should be able to make use of them. The format of the volumes can roughly be compared to that of the Word Biblical Commentary with variations of the following structure in most volumes: bibliographies by section, author translations with extensive translation notes, analysis of passages, interpretation, summary, and history of influence.
