Are the Zondervan Exegetical Commentaries right for you? We have seven statements listed below. If one or more of them resonate with you, we’d call that a good match. So, read through them! We’ve also included a video at the end.

  1. You want help interpreting the words of Scripture without getting bogged down in scholarly issues that seem irrelevant to the life of the church.
  2. You would like to see a visual representation of the flow of thought in each passage.
  3. You’d also like expert guidance from solid evangelical scholars. Preferably, you’d like guidance from those who set out to explain the meaning of the original text in the clearest way possible, helping you navigate through the main interpretive issues.
  4. You’ve taken Greek! You love commentaries that help you apply what you have learned without assuming you are a well-trained scholar.
  5. It would be useful to see a concise, one- or two- sentence statement of what the commentator thinks the main point of each passage is.
  6. You want to benefit from the results of the latest and best scholarly studies and historical information. These will help to illuminate the meaning of the text.
  7. You would find it useful to see a brief summary of the key theological insights that can be gleaned from each passage. Then, you would also appreciate some discussion of the relevance of these for Christians today.
