I am performing exegesis on the passages related to the Abrahamic Covenant in Genesis.

Would this benefit me at all?

I'm already going to consult: Word Biblical, Heremenia, Continental, NICOT, Anchor Bible, etc., plus HALOT, TDOT, NIDOTTE, etc., for word studies.

Thanks!

The LRC is designed to put you to first base quickly. On a given passage, it will tell you what all the reference commentaries point to as a main point. You can then take it from there. It's immensely helpful. I consider anything valuable related to Genesis (and the Pentateuch) indispensable. I think I got my copy in a package deal.

I like the Bible Guides as well.  They are basically a commentary survey.  They go through the major issues of each passage and link them to the most relevant sources available in Logos for that passage.  They even include a brief synopsis of each author's view.  They are very helpful.

I'd have to agree with Joseph. I love them. It's best when you can have all the resources they refer to throughout the Research Commentary. Now if you're a biblioholic and you see that there are a few or more resources missing that are mentioned in the LRC you will probably go through the temptations of, "should I or shouldn't I get those books?" Speaking as a weening biblioholic you'll end of getting them and loving that you did. But then you go through the remorseful thoughts of Romans 7 Confused

So if you can afford to fork over the cash for the 2 vol. set, I'd say get them. They will enhance your study of any Book let alone Genesis.

On a side note, when did they change the name of these from Lexham Bible Guides to Lexham Research Commentaries?  I do like the new name, but I didn't realize they had changed.

In "Collection rules for sorting commentaries" by Mark Barnes it should show up among the intermediate commentaries, but apparently does not anymore. Hmm

An email was sent out a while ago letting everyone know about the change from LBG to LRC.  I think they even did a blog post about it.

As DAL said, it was quite recently and it probably should have been that way from the beginning. For what it's worth, as a result, I had to go back and change the custom titles I had created to reflect this change and I know that others had do to the same to match the new designation as  commentaries.

Sounds good. I’ll look at grabbing them when I get a free moment.

Thanks David!

For some reason I don't see it in the "study guides" nor in other categories either.

I have four of those Lexham study guides currently.

Hi Michael:

The screen shot has to be in PNG format, and you need to use the clip icon to post the image.

Peace and grace.

If I recall correct, PNG, JPG, and BMP all should work - I use PNG most of the time, since that's what JING and Snipping Tool offer as default choice.

I have Philippians in this series but I don't find it particularly helpful. Perhaps some are more helpful than others?

I am teaching through Galatians and I am considering getting it in this series. Would anyone be able to upload a screenshot of Gal 4:3? (in particular στοιχεῖα) 

Thanks

I don't have the LRC on Galatians, but I do have An Exegetical Summary of Galatians (a series that does the same thing as LRC, but gets down to business a bit quicker). 

I haven't used either series very much, but what little I have used them, I find that I like the An Exegetical Summary series more. I like the layout and brevity.

Here is a picture of An Exegetical Summary of Galatians 4:3 

To give you a better idea of how the two series compare with one another, here is Lexham Research Commentary on Romans 10 vs An Exegetical Summary of Romans 10 -

They are more helpful with problem passages or passages with varied interpretations.  For instance, the Genesis 1-11 volume gives good breakdowns of the differing views of creation including some of the Hebrew involved.

Mike, here is the part on στοιχεῖα. It looks most of the section (3:1 - 4:7) focuses more on chapter 3. There is nothing for 4:1-3, but I included the part on 4:4-5. Hope this helps.
