Item Description...
What is unique about Commentaries for Biblical Expositors is the division of this massive number of commentaries into three rating systems, placed conveniently at the beginning ofhe book. Serious students will appreciate the rather extensive annotations. -DR. WALTER KAISER JR. Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Old Testament and Ethics President, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "Be warned: the writing of many books is endless." If Solomon had a problem staying abreast, what do we face? Who can help us? Dr. Rosscup can and does. I am a pastor as well as a professor, and the 1993 edition has been my constant companion, so with sheer delight I welcome the revised edition. The school where I teach has a strong stand on the absolute inerrancy of Scripture, so I need commentaries I can use and recommend. Without this guide, such a task would be overwhelming. -DR. RICHARD O. RIGSBY Professor of Semitic Languages and Old Testament, Talbot School of Theology Dr. Rosscup has condensed a lifetime of personal research into these pages. His comments are judicious and his recommendations reliable . . . I commend this work to the present generation of pastors, as well as to those who are "ministers-in-the-making." -DR. CYRIL J. BARBER Author, The Minister's Library Dr. Rosscup unlocks an unprecedented treasure. His compilation, annotation and evaluation of more than 1000 commentaries will show the "best of the best," both old and new. His lifetime investment will produce incalculably rich dividends in our future expositions. His revised edition looks at more than 300 additional commentaries. -DR. RICHARD MAYHUE Vice-President and Dean, The Master's Seminary Before anyone does a serious study of any book in the Bible, he should consult this work by Dr. Jim Rosscup. The scope is truly amazing. His evaluations are insightful and fair. The work is thorough and simple to use. I do not know of any tool on commentaries that is as comprehensive in covering the Old Testament and the New. -DR. HAROLD W. HOEHNER Distinguished Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary DR. JIM ROSSCUP (Th.M., Th.D., Dallas Theological Seminary; Ph.D., in New Testament from King's College, University of Aberdeen, Scotland) has been on the faculty of The Master's Seminary since 1987. He formerly served as chairman of the department of Bible Exposition at Talbot Theological Seminary from 1965 to 1987.

Great Resource For Selecting Commentaries  Apr 4, 2008
Though this book is not exhaustive in its lists or treatments of the commentaries, it provides a good starting point for anyone looking for good commentaries. His notes, from a solidly conservative perspective, will save the reader a lot of grief from reading worthless commentaries. It's especially good for those on a limited budget, who must carefully choose which books to buy .
The most depth of any resource on commentaries  Nov 2, 2007
This review will cover three leading books on books for the Christian pastor or scholar: Commentaries for Biblical Expositors by Rosscup, New Testament Commentary Survey by Carson, and Commentary and Reference Survey by Glynn. All three authors share the same evangelical Christian commitment, and all three are well informed about the field. Donald Carson holds the PhD. from Cambridge and is a professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. James Rosscup holds the Ph.D. from Aberdeen, Th.D. from Dallas Seminary, and is an emeritus professor at The Master's Seminary. John Glynn is a freelance writer who holds the Th.M. from Dallas Seminary.

Carson's book is the most famous, both because of his perceptive comments, and because his own commentaries feature so prominently in everyone's lists. When D. A. Carson talks... people listen. In fact, it becomes amusing as he has to mention his own very influential works without commenting on them in an unseemly way. "Carson's work [on John] is rather more difficult for me to assess." In addition, I was pleased to see that some of his more acerbic comments from previous editions have disappeared. However, the book is not without weakness. While the running commentary on commentaries is more engaging than an annotated list, his comments are too brief. Altogether, probably the most enjoyable read of the three, although his scope is the narrowest, only commenting on New Testament works.

Rosscup's book is unique because of the depth of the reviews, and the breadth of the resources he looks at. Unlike his competition, he puts a great deal more weight on the great commentators of the past. He combines the reviews, some of which run an half page, with ranking lists for each book of the Bible. Yet some of the reviews in this book are uneven, and some books that appear in ranking lists aren't reviewed. This is a very worthwhile resource, but one that would improve with better editing. He also displays a very pronounced preference for works of dispensational theology.

Glynn's book has the least information on each book reviewed, relying heavily upon ranked lists. I think of it as the "top ten" commentary book. However, his work is as valuable as the others here due to the scope of what he takes on. Glynn reviews systematic theologies, lexicons, and other resources the pastor-teacher will need. He leans the most of the three on the most recently published works, which I see as a weakness, as many of the commentators of the past provide rich information.

All of these are recommended for all pastors, and a good guide even for students/professors with access to a good theological library. You may not need them once you get your library settled, but in the initial stages of that quest, this book is worth its weight in gold. If you're a bibliophile, you'll want it nearby to putter around in even after you have a sound library.

Carson, Rosscup, and Glynn: all 5 stars.
