Commentaries can be funny things; you can find the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Many a starving student has dug deep into his pocket to pull out that preciously saved cash to purchase an expensive commentary, only to get it home to discover that he is now the proud owner of a rotten lemon. The commentary is either undecipherable due to extreme technicality, reflects the musings of some neo-liberal writer who has totally misunderstood Barth, or is just plain superficial, offering the student no help in understanding the Biblical text.
It is my desire to see believers exposed to the best commentaries that will benefit their study of Godís word. That is why I would like to recommend the following commentaries. Some of commentaries listed may be somewhat technical with the original languages, but they are not so difficult that a serious student will have trouble making use of them. Most of these listed here I have used in my own personal study. Others that I have not used are recommended from trustworthy friends of mine who have utilized them in their study of Godís word. I would imagine that some of these commentaries might be out of print. But, with a little bit of diligence and the scouring of the internet and used bookshops, they can be found.
