Well, I took the leap and upgraded from Scholar's to Gold and one of the primary reasons I did was the UBS Handbook Series and after looking at the content I think I made the right decision. My greek is rusty, and frankly I was never that strong in the first place. To have a commentary that  discusses the translation decisions/options (while referencing english translations that chose them) for the passages that I am studying is extremely helpful.

Those are great, but look at the New International Greek Testament Commentaries as well, they are just as great.

USB Handbooks are one of my most viewed resources as well. It gives a concise review of the text with the focus on on the text itself. Always worthwhile stuff. True the NIGTC resource (and other more indepth tools) is good for going deeper, but often a quick glance at USB is sufficient to know what else needs to be explored. I also like the fact that the Handbooks regularly references various english translations, especially if there are any significant variations. This is very helpful since we have a wide diversity of translations in our congregations.

Terry, the UBS Handbooks are part of my "top" three.

But I can't think of the other two Big Smile
