The Anchor Yale Bible is a project of international and interfaith scope in which Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish scholars from many countries contribute individual volumes. The project is not sponsored by any ecclesiastical organization and is not intended to reflect any particular theological doctrine.
The Anchor Yale Bible is committed to producing commentaries in the tradition established half a century ago by the founders of the series, William Foxwell Albright and David Noel Freedman. It aims to present the best contemporary scholarship in a way that is accessible not only to scholars but also to the educated nonspecialist. Its approach is grounded in exact translation of the ancient languages and an appreciation of the historical and cultural context in which the biblical books were written supplemented by insights from modern methods, such as sociological and literary criticism.
This commentary set covers:
- Entire Old Testament and Apocrypha with the exception of Deuteronomy 12-34; plus additional parallel volumes covering Joshua 1-12, Judges 1-12, and Ruth (63 volumes).
- Entire New Testament with the exception of Matthew; plus additional second editions of First Corinthians and Revelation (27 volumes)

This is the best commentary series out, even if there are some weak parts (see also Psalms). But the New Testament section is awesome as it quite unapologetically renders accurate translation and explanation even in spite of predominant (Nicea-inspired) doctrine and interpretation. This is a solid resource for anybody looking for the actual intent of the Scriptures rather than just eloquent apologetics. (If you want the latter, buy a Zondervan and save some money.)
