I have searched the forums and prepubs and did not find this.  Logos is missing a good currrent one-volume Bible Commentary.  I would prefer the Eerdmans but would be happy with the New Interpreters, New Jerome, Oxford or HarperCollins. 

If anyone has a suggestion for a resource similar to these currently available for Logos 5 I would be most appreciative.

Thanks!

Out of curiosity I'm wondering why you want a 1 vol commentary.  A set of separate commentaries on the entire bible isn't any heavier to carry nor does it require more room to pack than a 1 vol commentary.

Two reasons really, cost and a balance of succinctness and depth. On the first, per your signature: I share Erasmus' love of books but children and wife limit the options.   Secondly, particularly  when I wander in my readings to Biblical books with which I am less familiar, I like to have a succinct overview with a bit more depth than a Bible dictionary might provide.

Doesn't the Eerdmans one-volume commentary also include some of the pseudepigrapha (Psalm 151 and 1 Enoch)?

George Somsel:

The New Bible Commentary is a good choice if you want a one-volume commentary.

For those who want to take a look at the Eerdmans Commentary, here is a link:

George and HJ - Thank you for your replies.  I should have metioned I do own the New Bible Commentary (1994 - from the IVP Ref Collection) which is good and my quick reference for now.  I also have the older Harpers, Jerome and Bible Knowledge from way back in Logos 2.0.

The Eerdmans has great coverage and has some strong authors.  I'm about ready to purchase it in print but would greatly prefer a Logos version. For those of you who haven't seen it, take a look at the link HJ posted above and check out the table of contents.

For me, the problem with the New Bible Commentary is that it's far too conservative theologically. HarperCollins, Eerdmans, and New Jerome would be good alternatives, and happen to be the ones I recommend to people as well.

I agree Adam and having the Apocryphal works and 1Enoch is great (it;s the only one volume to cover that book).

Oxford used to be available. I got in on cd from a third party, and still have it in L4, but I don't think it's available for purchase any more.

It's easy to forget these 1-volume commentaries cover a lot of the less-traveled books. As Ben mentions, this is Oxford for comparison (OT apocrypha):

Update - According to Eerdmans, Logos has licensed the ECB and it will be coming at some point in the future.  Anyone at Logos have a date?  Thanks

I love Logos but this is frustrating. I am finding that many books I would like are available only in sets. I wanted to get Milgrom's volume on Leviticus only to find you have to buy the entire Anchor Bible to get it! For those of you who are more Logos-wise than I, is this bundling thing new or old? Do they ever un-bundle books?

Sometimes it takes years to unbundle books if it ever happens at all... Eerdmans NIC was just unbundled, leaving it very frustrated that the majority of new Eerdman books  are in sets only for this new set..
