Oxford Bible Commentary / January 01, 2001
Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.
Whether you see the Bible as the living word of God, or as a highly significant document from the ancient world, or as one of the classic works of world literature, The Oxford Bible Commentary will put in your hands everything you need to study and understand the biblical text.
Here is a monumental, line-by-line critical commentary on the Bible, covering all the books that appear in the NRSV. An essential reference work, this definitive book provides authoritative, non-denominational commentary written by an international team of more than 70 leading scholars from various religious backgrounds. Incorporating the latest research, the contributors examine the books of the Bible in exhaustive detail, taking a historical-critical approach that attempts to shed light on the scriptures by placing them in the context in which their first audiences would have encountered them, asking how they came to be composed and what were the purposes of their authors.
The Commentary includes a general introduction, extensive introductions to both testaments and the Apocrypha, and briefer introductions to the particular books, plus an essay with commentary on important post-biblical Jewish and Christian literature. Each article concludes with a bibliography that points the reader toward the most important supplemental works in English, including major reference works, introductions, and so forth.
A truly stunning work of biblical scholarship, The Oxford Bible Commentary will be an invaluable resource for pastors preparing a sermon, for students, for those in study or discussion groups, and indeed for anyone–whether Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, or Orthodox Christian–who seeks a clearer perspective on a text that has been held in reverence for thousands of years.

This is another volume my tutors encouraged me to get during study as they felt my peakes was too out of date. I bought both the hard copy and then the cd version. I still have the hard copy which my wife prefers but got rid of the cd as it had a poorly designed (unfriendly) interface. Having used the hard copy for many years, i was pleased to get this in accordance with all the tagging and user friendly interface.
This is a good single volume commentary and includes both the appocrypha and parrallels so is ideal for using with the nrsv which tends to be used throughout the diocese.
While it adds to the various study bibles I have, i feel it often doesnt give much additional insight to a passage and tend to go to wbc and only use this if i dont have much time. I do find the articles to be useful though but this isnt part of my usual workflow (unless im using the apocrypha).
