Recommended New Testament Commentaries for Evangelical Pastors
The commentaries in this library are the works Tom Schreiner suggested in his blog post "Recommended New Testament Commentaries for Evangelical Pastors" for the 9Marks website. The post included the following introduction:
- It is best to have several commentaries on each book of the Bible. Rather than purchasing sets of commentaries, I’d generally recommend the best volumes on each book.
- Some of the commentaries listed below are excellent in some respects, but argue for critical views that are unpersuasive.
- For those who want help with Greek syntax and such, see the series Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament published by Broadman & Holman and the Baylor Handbook on the Greek New Testament published by Baylor University Press.
- Finally, this list is arbitrary in the sense that it is personal, and I recommend what I think are the best commentaries for pastors to consult.
