The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series is a top-tier commentary sure to be the bedrock of your bible study. These acclaimed volumes are essential resources marked by three distinctives: they’re comprehensive without compromise; they’re written by today’s top scholars; and they’re unapologetically evangelical.
Re-introducing the EEC
When the EEC was launched back in 2011, it promised to be the most advanced biblical commentary ever produced. It was the first time a major Bible commentary series had been published in digital form before its print counterpart—and the first time one had been published with a digital format in mind.
A lot has happened since the series was first announced. Lexham Press as a publishing house has matured and grown. And our commitment to see this project through hasn’t wavered. There have been ups and downs—every major commentary series covering all of Scripture has had a similarly winding journey—but we’re in a better position than we’ve ever been to pursue the vision of the EEC with excellence. The currently published volumes, and the praise they’ve received from academics and pastors alike, speak for themselves.
We’re proud and excited to announce a number of new developments for the series. These changes should only serve to reinforce the fundamental mission of the EEC: to deliver thoroughly scholarly commentaries that don’t compromise on evangelical convictions, so that you can confidently use these volumes week in and week out in your sermon and teaching preparation and personal research and writing.
So take a look at what’s new with the EEC—we think you’ll really like what you see.
A NEW Look
The first thing you’ll notice is a completely new look for the series. The original covers that were designed for the series were functional, but they weren’t very inspiring. Design is a core value for Lexham—which wasn’t necessarily true back in 2011—and these new covers for the series reflect this passion. We wanted the outside of these volumes to match the high quality content that can be found on the inside.
The EEC Debut of New Testament Editor Andreas J. Köstenberger
Andreas Köstenberger joins the team as the new New Testament editor. Dr. Köstenberger is a leading New Testament scholar, prolific author, and editor of the premiere evangelical theological journal, employing his commitment to bringing biblically centered resources to the church. He’s joined by Ben Gladd who will be serving as Assistant New Testament Editor.
A number of new authors have signed up to take on volumes that had been floundering.
- Andrew Abernathy & Michael McKelvey on Psalms
- Bryan Estelle on Proverbs
- Ben Gladd on Mark
- Andreas Köstenberger on John
- Jay Smith has joined Wayne House on 1 Corinthians
- Bryan Tabb on 1 and 2 Thessalonians
- Brandon Crowe on James
- Susan Hecht on 2 Peter
There are still a few volumes that do not have an author attached yet. The editorial team is hard at work looking for new scholars who are excited to contribute to a top-tier biblical commentary.
Comprehensive without compromise
The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series will continue to provide exhaustive exploration that’s never exhausting—meeting the exacting standards of critical biblical scholarship. It is the trusted commentary you’ll turn to again and again.
