I wasn't sure if I wanted this resource because I know very little about it. But the fact that Warren Wiersbe said, "If you can locate the six-volume edition of the Expositor’s Bible, buy it immediately!", makes me want it. 

Does anyone know more about this resource? For instance, what is its position concerning the interpretation of Genesis 1-11?

I'm pretty sure they agree with Warren Wiersbe's interpretation of Gen. 1-11.

You could take a look at the sample pages on the web page. Page 3 of the Genesis - Ruth commentary should answer your question. The print is very faded and requires a couple of zooms, but it is readable.

Note that one of the endorsements contains the information that this set was written by a mix of conservative and liberal scholars, so you should find some with which you agree and some that you reject.

Perhaps I should have started a new thread...but another set to look at and consider in community pricing is The Speakers Commentary.

1. Have you noticed the images on product webpage show the commentary on Genesis 1- 2 ?

2. "The text is popularly written and devotional in character."  (Referring to I & II Samuel.)

Wow, I feel stupid. While the text was blurry, I was able to understand its position quite well! For anyone who is interested in what I found the text states:

1. The author of Genesis was not aiming to describe the process of creation.

2. Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis are glaringly incompatible in detail.

3. Genesis only deals with our "spiritual history".

4. Day does not mean day.

5. The author in Genesis only used the word "day" because he would have been discredited by his contemporaries if he had said millions of years. Therefore, he used the current cultural ideas of how the world was formed as to not offend his readers.

What I think we are seeing here is a standard problem with commentary sets written by multiple authors. Some of the volumes will take positions with which we strongly disagree. Other volumes may greatly please us. This is the nature of these sets. You have to take the trash along with the treasures.

If the set ships as multiple resources, which I hope it does, then one can hide the "trash" volumes using "Hidden Resources" on the program settings panel. This will keep then "out of sight and out of mind." On the other hand one can keep all the volumes available and use the "bad" ones to illustrate weak ideas or maybe even heresy. One often reads "bad" volumes, not be believe them, but to make sure one's own good teaching address the issues raised in the "bad" volumes.

I once saw a bumper sticker that say "No one is ever useless, they can always serve as a bad example." Maybe that is what I am saying about certain volumes in a commentary set.

There is, I am told, enough good volumes in this set to make it work buying, especially at this price.

This same principle can also be applied to a single volume by a single author. One buys the volume because there is enough good material in it to make it worth the price.

You mean back in the day, day didn't mean day? In my day  "during the day" meant day(light hours) but in a "couple of days" meant calendar days even if partial. Of course in the day of the dinosaurs day as a word didn't exist so day didn't mean anythingWink

Sorry this was just too fun to pass up.Big Smile

Any day now we could get some light on Genesis 2:4

It's a good thing we have Logos Bible Software to save the day. It appears that beyôm is an idiomatic phrase. And since yôm here lacks a numerical adjective (unlike in Genesis 1), I'm going to have to agree with the NIV translators and suggest that this is more appropriately translated "when".

Gen 2:4 NIV

This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created.
