Zondervan Exegetical Commentary
Ruth by Daniel I. Block – I’ve not used this particular commentary, but Block’s commentary on Ruth in the New American Commentary series was excellent. This one covers the book in greater depth.
Matthew by Grant Osborne – While I’d probably turn to Carson (EBC) and Nolland (NIGTC) first, I have found Osborne helpful.
Mark by Mark L. Strauss – While I’d turn to Edwards (PNTC) and France (NIGTC) first, I have found Strauss to provide helpful insights into the Olivet Discourse when I used him to study that passage.
Luke by David E. Garland – There isn’t a commentary by Garland that I’ve not been impressed with. This one is no exception.
John by Edward W. Klink III – There are times when I think Klink may be too imaginative, but he is an insightful literary reader. Helpful to read alongside Carson (PNTC).
Acts by Eckhard Schnabel – An excellent commentary on Acts. One of the best.
Romans by Frank Thielman – Thielman’s commentary competes in a crowded field―Moo (NICNT), Schreiner (BECNT), Cranfield (ICC), and more―nonetheless, having read Paul and the Law in Context I’m interested in just about anything Thielman writes.
Galatians by Thomas Schreiner – This is an excellent commentary on Galatians, ranking right up with Moo (BECNT) as one of the best to get.
Ephesians by Clinton Arnold – Not the first Ephesians commentary I would buy (I would get Thielman [BECNT], Baugh [EEC], and Hoehner first), but he has done a good job editing this series.
Colossians and Philemon by David Pao – I’ve not read this one yet.
1 and 2 Thessalonians by David Shogren – I’ve found this to be a decent contribution.
James by Craig Blomberg and Mariam Kamell – A commentary full of insights. Recommended.
1, 2, and 3 John by Karen Jobes – I’ve not used this commentary extensively, but Jobes’s commentaries have been uniformly good.
Revelation by Buist Fanning – I’m still working through this one, but Fanning’s commentary may be the best commentary on this book. Highly recommend.
There are several in the series by authors who are unknown to me but which I’m interested in because I’ve been impressed by the series thus far: Joel Barker on Joel; Kevin Youngblood in Jonah, Paul Gardner on 1 Corinthians.
NIV Application Commentary
Deuteronomy by Daniel Block – Anything by Block is worth getting. This entry-level commentary by Block is often more insightful than some of the larger commentaries.
Judges, Ruth by K. Lawson Younger – I’ve not purchased this commentary, but I’ve referenced it on Judges and found it helpful.
1 & 2 Samuel by Bill Arnold – Another I’ve not purchased by have found helpful when I referenced it.
Esther by Karen Jobes – An insightful literary reading of Esther.
Daniel by Tremper Longman III – A very helpful literary reading. Even in the passages where I would differ from Longman eschatologically, I still find helpful insights.
2 Corinthians by Scott J. Hafemann – Hafemann did his doctoral work on this book, and his expertise shows.
Philippians by Frank Thielman – Anything by Thielman is worth getting in my estimation.
Colossians and Philemon by David E. Garland – Again, a helpful entry level treatment by a sure-footed commentator.
Hebrews by George Guthrie – Guthrie did his doctoral work on Hebrews and his expertise shines through in this volume.
There are a number of volumes in this series that I’ve not used but whose authors signal that they are likely worthwhile purchases. (In some cases, depending on your purposes, however, you should consider buying the in-depth commentary that the author wrote on the same book.) These volumes would include Hill on 1 & 2 Chronicles; Oswalt on Isaiah; Smith on Hosea, Amos, Micah; Baker on Joel, Obadiah, Malachi; Boda on Haggai, Zechariah; Wilkins on Matthew; Garland on Mark; Bock on Luke; Moo on Romans; Blomberg on 1 Corinthians; Moo on 2 Peter, Jude.
No Quick Fix by Andy Naselli – An excellent readable critique of Keswick theology.
God, Revelation, and Authority by Carl F. H. Henry – Henry’s magnum opus. Required theological reading.
Theology of the Old Testament by Gustav Oehler – Classic Old Testament theology.
