General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations.
The design for the Preacher’s Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author’s approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the biblical translation of the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher’s Commentary because it combines the beauty of language, the underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and the thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily add any other translation in parallel.
The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

I have had this series for a number of years. It is a solid commentary with fine exposition, occasionally some examples might be dated but all in all this is a most useful series with valuable insights and well worth owning, indeed it's volume on the Proverbs is one of my favourites from the series. These volumes are not technical but offer good material for devotional times and sermon ideas. The series is solidly evangelical drawing on scholars from a wide range of denominations (including Episcopal, Mennonite, Reformed, Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist and more) but all offering a reverent view of scripture and it's tradition.
