My personal favorite is Jeff Tigay’s JPS Torah Commentary. This commentary has all the hallmarks of a “life’s work” kind of volume. Tigay has poured his heart and soul into this piece, brought together classic commentary with the Rabbis and theologically sensitive, common sense commentary. [Full Review]
As mentioned in previous "Top 5" posts, the JPS Torah Commentaries are written by Jewish scholars and are highly technical. Tigay writes from a somewhat critical stance, so this commentary can only be recommended with qualification for discerning pastors and seminary students. Those doing scholarly work on Deuteronomy will find it immensely helpful. [Full Review]
A committed source critic studies the book within a Jewish context. [Full Review]
