Good news: EEC Philippians is on track to be released by the end of the year. To ensure quality, all 500,000+ words have been through several rounds of review and editorial. It’s in great shape and we’re excited to release this volume by Mark Keown. 

Unfortunately, EEC Jeremiah will not be released this year like we hoped. Walt Kaiser has written a fantastic commentary—very approachable and pastoral—but during our academic review we have determined that the manuscript needed further technical discussion and text-critical engagement than was ready in time for the deadline. We believe this delay, while not ideal, will ultimately serve EEC readers better, as it will further strengthen Kaiser’s excellent contribution.

Several other volumes are also nearing completion. Joshua1 & 2 Chronicles, and Amos/Jonah/Micah all have complete first drafts and are currently in the review/revision process. In addition, the authors of LeviticusDaniel, and Galatians all hope to finish their first drafts by the end of summer 2017. Shortly after, the authors of Ecclesiastes hope to finish their first draft by early fall 2017.

As always, we remain committed to delivering high-quality EEC volumes and we are very excited to release each forthcoming volume.

I hope Dr. Varner gets a chance to correct his commentary on James.

In the press release they stated they will find another author for the book of James.

Yes, I know. But without any explanation about the errors, is this a good direction in this case? Why not let Dr. Varner correct the errors?

The academic world is less forgiving than the Christ.

I am pretty sure in the press release they gave an awesome explanation. In college I would have been expelled for not citing my research and if I ever write a book, especially an academic book, then failure to cite my research would cause the book to not be published. I personally cannot understand how the publisher's did not catch it before it was published. Don't forget Dr. Varner was not the first author to do this. But any school will expelled students for doing this.

Whilst not disagreeing with any of the positive and appreciative comments on this series recorded above; please do note that a significant number of the unpublished titles have had their publication dates pushed back; and in a number of case by quite a few years. This is not to be confused with estimated dates that have arrived that we didn't have before.

So I suppose also with the furore over the attibution and citations issue currently raging we should embrace that fact this (and other) series will necessarily take longer to complete to the 'higher bar' quality now expected.

Shalom

Is there any way that we can get a detailed update like this again?

  • Jeremiah - April 30, 2018
  • Leviticus - May 1, 2018
  • Daniel - August 1, 2018
  • Joshua - September 1, 2018

Also, there used to be a separate website for the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary.  I can't seem to find it anymore.

I wish they would put these on prepub.  I don't want to buy the whole set up front but I have bought each volume as time has gone on.

I too can't find the stand alone website - either this is a domain registration/renewal issue or more likely they have reconsidered its value and ceased it.

It looks like the website was at evangelicalexegeticalcommentary.com; however, all links associated with the site now redirect to the Logos EEC product page.

Thanks all for your questions about the EEC.

We're working on a comprehensive update for the series, we should be able to share it soon.

The EEC website was recently retired and now EvangelicalExegeticalCommentary.com redirects to a landing page on LexhamPress.com. This landing page will be much easier to maintain.

I am very much looking forward to Kaiser's commentary. My approach to reading and understanding the old testament has been so influenced by him that I'm excited to walk with him through an entire book of the Bible, especially Jeremiah, especially since the commentary is pastoral (as I would expect from Kaiser)

Thank you for working hard to ensure that the EEC is the best possible resource.

Can the dates be better trusted on the Lexham Press page? Or should we continue to ignore the dates that are posted?

Any chance of being able to buy them on Pre-Pub?  Normally they just pop into the ecosystem but a prepub discount would be nice
