The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

The WBC is the best-selling multi-volume commentary series in the market today. WBC authors are all experts in their field and skillfully bring the text to meaning through careful exegesis and exposition. Each WBC contributor creates his own translation based on the best texts and literature available. The WBC has the largest bibliography available.

In the 90s, for one of my assignments I was fortunate to have access to a very good library with a number of commentaries from different sets as well as individual commentaries and I had a week where I could use them undisturbed. I gravitated to the wbc volume as it suits the way I work and kept going back to it and spending more and more time rereading it with less time on the other ones. I was able to sample other volumes in the series.

I accept that all sets have their strong and weak volumes but this set became the one I wanted in my library and for many years kept trying to get it on cd at a reasonable cost. Fortunately i didn't as the cd version doesnt have all the marvelous tagging and links in it!!!!

Accordance had the wbc set on one of their sales and I was able to get this entire set at a very attractive price and added to it as other volumes have become available (just waiting for acts and 1 cor now!). It has become my go to commentary set at the top of my library! I have ...

Accordance had the wbc set on one of their sales and I was able to get this entire set at a very attractive price and added to it as other volumes have become available (just waiting for acts and 1 cor now!). It has become my go to commentary set at the top of my library! I have supplemented it with volumes from Pillar and nicot and the original Expositors set but wbc has remained my go to. Having now got the set and used it constantly since 2014, there is no way i would want to be without it now! The more i use these volumes, the more i appreciate them. (Though i do sometimes get information overload!)

As I have used these volumes over the years I have decided it is because of the way each volume has structure. As dan has said in his review, the commentary is set out with a translation, notes, form, structure, comments and explanation. I find it much easier to home in on what I am looking for than I do in either Pillar or nicot. In pillar and nicot the information is scattered through a number of paragraphs with no discernable structure from one chapter to the next (despite one particular Pillar commentary receiving 100% on the best commentaries web site). In wbc, i can go to the section i require and not have to wade through text that, though interesting, isnt what i am looking for.

I also use the Nivac volumes which get me thinking in a different direction and the two commentary sets compliment each other, both are structured for easy navigation and orientation but very different in content and purpose.

I am so thankful for the Accordance sales that have enabled me to get these two sets. While i really appreciate Nivac, I wouldn’t want it to be my primary commentary as I need a technical one. but for me, having both, these have become an unbeatable duo.

A must have for scholarly research. The WBC can be somewhat challenging to navigate and read, but having the entire series available in digital format makes it very convenient. I only wish the additional volumes (Job) did not have to be purchased separately.

How great is it to have this entire library at the tip of your finger on your iPad or laptop.

This commentary is a must have especially for anyone studying at a higher level, and has an interest in the more scholarly/academic debate that occurs.

The WBC is a very fine commentary series. Offering critical scholarship on the Holy Scriptures from a general evangelical viewpoint. This series is well written and offers insights that can benefit students of all viewpoints. Each section begins with a fresh translation and a detailed analysis of the text (Form/Structure/Setting), commentary and Explanations (sometimes this area of reflection/application is put off till end of the larger section being discussed). While the series is critical have no doubts of the authors reverence for the text. This series has much Greek and Hebrew in it and is NOT transliterated. But do not let that scare you, for one beauty of Accordance is that hovering over said words a transliteration appears in the instant details window.
