Matthew Poole’s Commentary – 3 vols

MatthewPooleCommentary3vols.jpgHere’s another bible commentary that I own in both hardback and software.
Hatthew Poole’s Commentary of the Bible – 3 volumes is another very popular bible commentary.
Here’s the blurb:
Perhaps the only true rival to Matthew Henry! Charles Spurgeon said, “If I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator . . . not so pithy and witty by far as Matthew Henry, but he is perhaps more accurate, less a commentator, and more an expositor.” 3104 pages total, three hardcovers from Hendrickson.
Currently, the 3 volume hardback versions sells for about $60 at ChristianBook.com; however, I’m sure I didn’t pay that amount. I’m thinking I picked it up for sale for about $40.
Every now and then ChristianBook.com deeply discounts some items. Watching their ads is very worthwhile as you can get some outstanding books at a small cost.

Hendriksen & Kistemaker – New Testament Commentary – 12 vols

WilliamHendriksenSimonKistemakerNewTestamentCommentary12vols.jpgWilliam Hendriksen & Simon J. Kistemaker’s New Testament Commentary, 12 Volumes is an indepth bible commentary of the New Testament.
You’re not dealing with a lightweight collection of a commentary glossing over a few verses. At 12 volumes they go in depth in their commentary of the New Testatment.
Also, while you are sometimes able to pick up multi-volume collections at very low prices at ChristianBooks.com, this one doesn’t quite fall into that range. At $100, it’s not cheaps; however considering the fact this 14 volume collection, it contains thousands of pages of commentary.
Here’s the blurb:
This set is ideal for pastors and serious Bible students of the Reformed tradition. It is the only complete commentary on the New Testament written solely from a Reformed perspective. The award-winning twelve-volume hardcover set features verse-by-verse exegesis and applications, critical notes on the Greek text, chapter summaries, and extensive bibliographies and indexes of authors, Scripture, and other ancient writings enhance the usefulness of each volume.
Begun by William Hendriksen, Baker’s New Testament Commentary has earned the acclaim and respect of Reformed and evangelical scholars and pastors. Since Hendriksen’s death in 1982, the series has been continued by Simon J. Kistemaker. Four of the volumes compiled by Kistemaker earned the Gold Medallian Award (Hebrews, James and 1-3 John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians). The series was completed in 2001 with the publication of Revelation. Now, for the first time, the entire twelve-volume set may be purchased.
William Hendriksen (Th.D., Princeton Theological Seminary) was professor of New Testament literature at Calvin Theological Seminary.
Simon J. Kistemaker (Ph.D., Free University, Amsterdam) is professor emeritus of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida.

Actually, the price of $100 certainly isn’t bad for 12 books. That comes out to less than $10 per hardback.

Walvoord & Zuck’s – The Bible Knowledge Commentary

WalvoordZuckTheBibleKnowledgeCommentaryOldAndNewTest2Vols.jpgJohn F. Walvoord & Roy B. Zuck’s ‘The Bible Knowledge Commentary – Old and New Testament (2 vol) collection is another outstanding bible commentary.
Here’s the blurb:
Edited by John F. Walvoord and Roy B. Zuck, The Bible Knowledge Commentary features insightful exposition and commentary on the entire Bible from members of the distinguished Dallas Theological Seminary faculty. For commentary from the historical-grammatical and premillennial perspectives, it’s hard to beat this commentary, and the commitment to scriptural inerrancy is unmatched. Thoroughly conservative and Evangelical, this commentary showcases what Dallas Theological Seminary has become world famous for, and offers all students of the Bible an insightful and applicable commentary.
This 2 volume hardback set is available through ChristianBook.com for about $40.
I don’t own the printed version; however, I do have the collection within my e-Sword software.
This was not free software. I had to pay $20 for the collection.
Ideally, it’s nice to have both the printed and electronic versions; however, I’m happy to have this one on software. The great part about the software version is that you can easily copy parts of it, then transfer to your word processor without having to type everything.
