The Old Testament Library is one of the most respected commentary series produced in the last 50 years. As with any series that reaches this level of respectability, it is comprehensive in scope while acknowledging that it is not exhaustive. Introductory matters cover historical concerns, cultural issues, the reception of the text, the integrity of the text, and other interpretive issues.

Each commentary provides a verse-by-verse analysis of critical exegetical matters that are then synthesized into a progressively building understanding of the text and interpretation. This includes analysis of problems in history, word meaning, syntactical and grammatical issues, text history, and many other exegetically relevant issues. Nevertheless, despite the breadth of their scope, volumes in the series remain relatively compact in comparison to series who share its aims and scope.

Key Elements

  • Audience: Students, Pastors, and Scholars
  • Perspective: Moderate/Liberal
  • Scripture: Inspired
  • General Acceptance of Higher Critical authorship theories, and the reader should be familiar with these type of textual criticism
  • Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary, but a willingness to engage concepts from it will be necessary.

This module contains 31 volumes that cover the entire Old Testament. The following volumes are included (and available individually):

* These volumes represent the latest published volume for these books. Earlier published volumes ("classic" volumes) for these particular books are also available.

i bought this particular set on Oct. 23. 2017 during the previous (introductory) sale. (Right now I'm just fresh from general confession when I write this, a state of purity and devoteness I'm keen to maintain.)
A truly remarkable purhase! The extent of the included volumes are beyond what I even thought I was getting at the moment of purchase although it was definitely a very well matured purchase decision, meaning the coverage is excellent with the precision of scholarship and scope of viewpoints. Version 1.1 out on Dec. 30. 2017 so I really do get some value for ownership.
Page count for this totals 11,688 pages. Exodus, Samuel, Chronicles, Job, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel are each over 500 pages, with Chron being the double of that.
Getting more older volumes was as a POSITIVE - I'm a History of Ideas (besides language) geek, so I want to know if someone was first, and when, with a definition, a concept, or even a conclusion from archaeology.

I'm completing my set and NTL monographs with individual unavailable print volumes - f.e. Gray on Kings (3rd Ed. is from 1977 and seems to only have been produced in paperback). Btw: (No competitor offers a more complete set of OTL/NTL - for example a certain platform didn't initially offer and still has problems/delays producing/releasing the 1-2 Thess NTL volume by Boring).
EDIT: My impression of the series as a whole, commentaries and monographs, has been affirmed with use, to be this: That it offers precision - to me precision is things such as that I can trust that OTL/NTL is worth consulting since the various volumes have OFTEN been the very first works to state a concept, a definition, or a conclusion - being a History of Ideas buff, that is the way I want to approach and dig into things, and the author's translations of Bible text being dealt with included are sometimes the very best there is to be found, again an area where I've specialized for even a decades more than I've specialized in History of Ideas. What I have is often so well made that if functions as a source in research and writing papers or just affirming the hermeneutic path I'm into with regards to a passage or the importance of a Biblical figure such as Paul, etc. This series has added a lot to what other series that I've been using for a bit longer, are saying
