The Pillar New Testament Commentary from Eerdmans, edited by D. A. Carson, has continued to be invaluable reference work for scores of Accordance users. Today we are announcing a significant update to our Pillar volumes in the Accordance Library with the following volumes:

  • The Gospel According to Luke by James R. Edwards
  • Romans by Colin G. Kruse
  • The Second Letter to the Corinthians by Mark Seifrid

Those who had purchased the original Romans volume by the late Leon Morris will still be able to access the older work as well as use it side by side with Kruse’s edition on Romans.

The Pillar New Testament Commentary has long had a reputation for serious Evangelical scholarship that is also accessible to the widest audience possible. Scholars, students, pastors and serious laypersons continue to benefit from the research and insights in the Pillar series. Greek and Hebrew words are generally transliterated into English in the main body of the text, and the commentary itself interacts with modern translations as well as the author’s own.

Most volumes of the Pillar New Testament Commentary use the New International Version as a base text. Regarding the release of these newest three volumes, Edwards continues to use the 1978 NIV, and Kruse bases his commentary on the more recent 2011 edition. Seifrid takes a departure from the norm by opting to base his commentary primarily on the English Standard Version.

All specialized indexes are included in these volumes, too. For instance, Seifrid’s work on 2 Corinthians includes indexes on the following: Authors, Hebrew Old Testament, Greek Old Testament, New Testament, and Extrabiblical Literature.

Readers can now include all 16 of the current Pillar Commentary volumes in their personal Accordance Library. For those who prefer to have the entire set, upgrades are available from previous purchases. Alternatively, individual volumes are also available.
