    1 thought on “The Oxford Bible Commentary

    1. I have certainly not read this book, because it s 1400 pages approximately, but I have found it an indispensable book to refer to It s a no nonsense commentary to the bible No apologetic drivel, no vague Christian liberal idiocy, but a thorough and informative commentary it is What I especially liked of what I ve read sofar is the the end of Matthew, where the commentary shows quite clearly how he makes up a lot of answers to the Jewish sceptics to the resurrection for apologetical reasons.Perfe [...]

    2. I read the commentary page by page along side the King James for an entire summer 4 or so years ago I took on this project to clear my eyes from the slant that K 12 Xian school places on that so easily misused ancient string of texts I m glad I did it during college since I wouldn t have the time to take on such work now Since each book entry is done by a different author, some books are commentated on better than others I didn t hack through the NT took a good class on it instead , but what I s [...]

    3. If you re looking for just ONE reference book for the Bible, this is the one to buy It has an extraordinary amount of in depth research, analysis and commentary by renowned scholars and theologians Frankly, I don t know how anyone could truly understand the Bible without this guidebook I found it indispensable.

    4. I did not read all of it, but only the parts that had to do with my interest As a non Christian, it was very neutral and informative Compared to other commentaries it stuck to the academic without the dogma.

    5. This is an invaluable reference guide when you want to understand this or that in the bible from a literary, historical or political perspective.
