The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary offers outstanding, fresh, and accurate scholarship on every book of the Bible. It is designed to help pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible understand the meaning of the Word of God.
Written by many of the same scholars who worked on the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible, the Cornerstone Biblical Commentary is the product of years of meticulous work. Each of the nearly 40 scholars is well-known, and a wide spectrum of theological positions within the evangelical community is represented. Their time and effort will benefit you as you study the Bible. The volumes also will share the reasons behind the translation decisions made when creating the NLT.
The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary focuses first on the words of Scripture, then on the theological truths of Scripture. For each book of the Bible, you'll find a thorough outline and overview detailing the author, period, and cultural considerations. Each Bible passage offers a Notes section, where the commentator helps you understand the Hebrew or Greek behind the English of the NLT, which is cited at the beginning of each section. Following this is the Commentary section, where you’ll find the most valuable insight.
- Features fresh expository commentary
- All Greek and Hebrew words include links to the Strong's Numbering System

Grateful for a recent commentary series that covers newer discoveries. I have a decent-sized library in Accordance, and this was one of only two commentaries that found hits in the Research Tab for "Khirbet Qeiyafa"--an archaeological site excavated first in 2007.
I see that most of the volumes in this commentary were written roughly 2007-2011. That is far more recent that many of the free or public domain commentaries I have in other Bible software's, which of course, found no hits for "Khirbet Qeiyafa."
I'm brand new to this Cornerstone Commentary, and can't comment beyond this, but just wanted to show my appreciation that it found a hit for a relatively recent discovery.

This is one of the finest evangelical commentary series out there for it size and scope. It does deal with some critical issues but for the most part focuses on the meaning of scriptures for our lives. It expounds the scripture digging into greek and hebrew, provides insights into background of the passage and offers us clues on how to best live that out in our day to day lives. Here is brief snippet from the end of it's treatment of Psalm 101:
"Psalm 101 is a celebration of the Lord’s covenant commitment to his people—a commitment that empowers us to be committed to a life of integrity before God and in relation to others."
