Paideia: Commentaries on the New Testament is a series that sets out to comment on the final form of the New Testament text in a way that pays due attention both to the cultural, literary, and theological settings in which the text took form and also to the interests of the contemporary readers to whom the commentaries are addressed. Each commentary deals with the text in terms of larger rhetorical units; these are not verse-by-verse commentaries. This series thus stands within the stream of recent commentaries that attend to the final form of the text.

Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by
-- attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
-- showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
-- commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
-- focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
-- making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Paideia commentaries pay deliberate attention to this extratextual repertoire in order to highlight the ways in which the text is designed to persuade and move its readers. Each rhetorical unit is explored from three angles: (1) introductory matters; (2) tracing the train of thought or narrative flow of the argument; and (3) theological issues raised by the text that are of interest to the contemporary Christian. Thus, the primary focus remains on the text and not its historical context or its interpretation in the secondary literature.

Can a person wear out an electronic copy or give to someone else? I started out little by little, buying the Ro volume in print, then a few volumes at a time in a competing software, sometimes just one volume at a time. I finally got slightly more than half of the present volumes, so my set there is incomplete. I had created a spare account I'm giving away (in that other software), and when this set went on a sale I paid for in it, since then there came three new volumes but didn't place an order for those new volumes. Now that this came out in Accordance I'm buying it here for myself.
I even use the commentaries' own English translations of the Biblical book, for a couple parts (Ro and 1 Cor, 2 Cor 8-9).
There are some really good authors in these: Brant, Matera, Perkins. I also like the Eph and Col -volume even though I buy only few things by the author of that volume and usually only for a low price. Just to name a few of the volumes. I use most of the volumes published from 2012 ...

I also like the Eph and Col -volume even though I buy only few things by the author of that volume and usually only for a low price. Just to name a few of the volumes. I use most of the volumes published from 2012 and onward (not for example Lk), (plus like I mentioned the Jn, Ro and Eph/Col -volumes). The Jn -volume has a conspicuous use of Ancient Literature.
These are effective to use to get to the current research within areas that matter.
For 2 Cor 1-7 only the ICC 2nd series -volume by Thrall (far) surpasses this series, but I use the Paideia 2 Cor -volume for the rest of the book.
It's difficult to find theologically dependable commentaries for some of the parts of the Bible that some of these volumes comment on, such as Ro, 1 Cor, 2 Cor, Col, 1 Jn. The only series that equals Paideia on 2 Cor, Col and 1 Jn is NTL (New Testament Library).
When there are upgrades available in Accordance in the future I'm going to be ready to buy them here, (not anywhere else).
