Intermediate = semi technical/ good all round commentary series.

I am curious to know what other people have prioritised in their library.

 

Hopefully this curiousity will not kill the cat.

NAC, College press, Expositor's

All three are easy to read not very technical and yet not overly simplistic. Good balance in my opinion.

I have 17 more but only use some of them on rare occasions. The three mentioned I use weekly.

Yes I have NAC

Which edition of Expositors do you have? because there 3 editions available in Logos.

I know nothing about College Press, anyone else use them?

I use the 1990 version of the Expositor's Bible Commentary but also have the old Expositor's Bible 1903 but don't use that one very often.

I use college press.  They are written from a church of Christ perspective.  Pretty much you will find almost the same application and comments other commentaries give, but when it comes to NT theology concerning baptism, faith + works, grace, etc. it is not your typical denominational explanation.    Useful and practical.  I also use EBC, Analytical Bible Expositor because of the great alliterated chapter outlines (useful when doing expository preaching); also worth mentioning Bible Knowledge, Bible Exposition, Expositor's Bible by Robert Nicoll, Lange's and Meyer's.

DAL

Edit: Plus Barclay's Daily Bible Readings, though I only have the original in Spanish.  I wish I had the original in English and not the new one.

Anybody has inputs for commentaries on just "applications & devotionals" & ENCOURAGEMENTS for both young adults & Sunday school? I have those academic ones.. but I'm looking the "best simple" commentaries.

Thank you

Rationale? I'm constantly changing priorities based on what I happen to be working on. So, at the moment:

Of course, NOW I see that I haven't added in new purchases ... you've given me several hours of work updating this. Are you happyTongue Tied

Incidentally, M.J., where did you get that "African Bible Commentary Series (2 volumes)"?

I can't find it anywhere in the Logos product catalog.

Hi Lee

Lee:

Not MJ but it could be http://www.logos.com/product/5427/africa-bible-commentary - (note "Africa" not African")

Thanks Graham! Actually I spotted that too. That seems to correspond to the un-bolded text "ABC: Africa Bible Commentary"  in MJ's screenshot.

I was piqued by the next title on the screenshot, which has two volumes.

Sorry I should have spotted that

I thought I remembered a discussion on that and found it at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/23433.aspx

It looks as though they are available as part of a bigger bundle - http://www.logos.com/product/8130/zondervan-commentaries-collection

Re African Commentaries: They seem to be interesting.

These are the only books from the bundle that are not available separately, and since it has been asked to disassemle the collection years ago  http://community.logos.com/forums/t/26037.aspx ) maybe it's time to ask again about it.

Or have Logos apply dynamic pricing to all collections - I own the ZECNT and Swindoll works and wouldn't mind getting Waltke and the Africans for a few dollars (but not the whole fistful of them)
