Yes, I know we have  Reformation and Medieval commentary series in a catena style, but for Logos 9 lets all get behind Rosie and demand the most common reception history commentary

Rosie Perera:

A friend is reviewing the most recently published of these volumes, so this series just came to my attention. It seems quite unique, and would be a good thing to have in Logos.

"The Blackwell Bible Commentaries offer a genuinely new approach in their emphasis on the way the Bible has been used and interpreted through the ages, from the church fathers through to current popular culture, and in spheres as diverse as art and politics, hymns, and official church statements. These are the first commentaries to place an emphasis on the Bible in literature, music, and art; the Bible in history and politics; and the Bible in theology and religion.

The volumes explore the fascinating reception history of the Bible, since what people believe a sacred text like the Bible means is often as interesting and historically important - theologically, politically, morally, and aesthetically - as what it originally meant.

This outstanding series will be appreciated by students, their teachers, and by anyone who wishes to understand how the Bible has been interpreted down the ages, and is still used in contemporary culture. Further information about the series is available from the Blackwell Bible Commentaries website at www.bbibcomm.net."

The series is ongoing...

Most of those that have been published already are available in Kindle.

I've been impatience for at least 6 years so it is time for some action on this truly magnificent and useful seres.

While waiting for Blackwell Bible Commentaries and/or The Apocrypha: The Lutheran Edition with Notes (we did get the latter)

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
