Into Grace:
Yes, the authors are Calvinists. Because of this, some passages are not allowed to mean what the grammar and context indicates.

That's pretty presumptuous.

hmmm....sorry folks.  I don't bash Calvinists...I am just confessing I like to know the known bias of those writing these volumes and I do not always know when I hit purchase.  From what I read though it looked useful regardless. I bought it.

My post was not intended to bash Calvinists.  There are many, many committed Christians who love Jesus Christ who are Calvinists. I have benefited from their books, especially commentaries. I will break bread with them; we both serve the same Savior; we will spend eternity together praising our Savior :) I don't like theological systems (Calvinism, Dispensationalism, etc.). Because of the priesthood of the believer (direct accountability to God), we should spend time in Scripture and allow it and the Spirit of God to define our theology over time —not a predefined theological grid.  There are many job openings in the Berean interpretation department. The early church did not interpret the Bible under a theological lens. They had "the faith that was once for all delivered to the Saints" (Jude 3). When the Scripture is approached under the lens of a theological system, the system can become the authority. This is upside down.  With the reservations expressed, I do recommend this commentary set.

Into Grace, being a plain-text afficionado, I agree with you.  But your phrasing implied (by subtracting from 100%), that a sizable share of Calvinists weren't committed Christians. I don't presume to know the definition of either, but the word 'Really?!' did come to mind.

Reading some of these replies, and being non-Reformed (though Calvinist-leaning) in my theology, do you think this commentary is worth picking up for the price? I have a gift code to knock $10 off, too, so I am debating picking this up. I am on a tight budget (college student), but figured I would give it a whirl if it sounds like it is, indeed, worth it!

Thanks for any input!

Tony,

Yes, it is worth it at the sale price and with the gift code it will be even more so. Having said that, I respect that you're on a budget and that even then it could be a stretch. Grace to you.

I own way too many resources especially commentaries on Logos (pretty much all of the major series), and the Baker commentary is prioritized at number 2, because I find it the most useful for both sermon prep, academic studies and personal study.

I used my $50 gift code to purchase the whole collection for free. I waited for three months for a deal worthy, and once I saw this I immediately pounced. 

One of the best purchases I've made in logos
