Jeremy:

I really think the New American Commentary set is underrated. It is a pretty good commentary that blends technical matters, but puts it in a way that most people can understand. The NIV Application is also very very good. I like how it divides the text into original meaning, bridging contexts and application.

YesYes I own both of these sets and I fully agree!

I, also, like BECNT and the UBS Handbook series.

For single volume commentaries, I tend to use the Grace New Testament Commentary and the Believer's Bible Commentary the most.

Pastor Terry Brown:

How can I get my commentaries to show in my passage guide on logos for mac?

This is a very old thread. In order to get proper attention to your problem, you should start a new thread with a bit more explanation. Your commentaries should show automatically in the default passage guide.

Terry - I concur with Jack... It would be best to start a new thread... Make sure to create it in the right forum. If you are using L4, please use the L4 Mac forum. If you are using L5, use the L5 one (there is no Mac only one for L5). 

Since I don't fully understand your issue, I can only make a guess... I think you are needing to prioritize your favorite commentaries. Once you explain more about your needs, we can go from there. Please do create a new thread though, since your issue is off topic for this thread.

I love when an old post is revived.  It's like getting a birthday present a year after my last birthday.

Isn't a year after your last birthday also known as this birthday? Wink

Mike Aubrey:

For the books he wrote on, Lightfoot is always dependable -- often more so than recent commentaries.

Indeed, he is. 

My favorite set is the New International OT / NT Commentaries.  Then it would be Word Biblical Commentary, Tyndale, New American Commentaries, and the Ancient Christian Commentaries.
