WRPR 128: Reading Sacred Texts (HC) Spring 2013: Contemporary Commentaries

Commentary Series

There are a number of commentary series.  Seven of the series that you will want to consult are listed below. Remember that the quality and usefulness of the individual volumes within a series may vary.  Also some of the series may not have volumes that cover every Biblical book.  To find the tri-college holdings of a series,  type in the name of the commentary series when doing a 'title' search in TRIPOD (I suggest you use Tripod Classic).  After obtaining the list of volumes in the series you can either scan through the list or do a "Limit" and then "Enter Limits" with the "Words in title" option using the name of the Biblical book that you are researching.
