New Endorsements for the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

Endorsements and reviews have begun to come in for Ezra and Nehemiah, the first volume to ship in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary. Here are a few:

“Israel Loken has done a masterful job of producing a commentary on Ezra that is exegetically thorough and theologically sound. He brings a solid biblical emphasis to the literary analysis of narrative literature and has combines the best of modern scholarly research with a profound respect for the text as God’s inspired Word. This volume needs to be in the library of any serious student of the Bible.”

Dr. Charles Dyer
Professor-at-Large of Bible
Moody Bible Institute

“Loken has done exhaustive research into every aspect of Ezra studies and has pulled it together in a most pleasingly readable form. I predict this will become the go-to work on the subject for years to come.”

Eugene H. Merrill
Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, TX
Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Understanding the historical background as he does, the author presents an insightful exposition of the book which is highly recommended.”

J. Dwight Pentecost
Distinguished Professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary, Emeritus

“Israel Loken’s masterful commentary on Ezra in the Exegetical Evangelical Commentary sets a high water mark for the series and reflects the best of an evangelical scholarship that includes and interacts with the contributions of critical scholarship while remaining true to the standards of biblical authority and inerrancy. It is a pleasure to recommend this volume, which will surely be regarded as a major commentary on this important historical book.”

Randall Price, Ph.D.

Preview the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

You can preview part of the introduction as well as the complete section of commentary on Ezra 1:1–4. We’ve posted the previews on under the Ezra and Nehemiah section. Keep in mind that these previews show you only the text of the commentary. They don’t show you the features that come with a fully-tagged, fully-linked Logos book.

Shipping Soon!

The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary is shipping in just a few weeks. When the first volume ships on June 1, 2011, we will process orders for the entire EEC. Then, as each new volume becomes available, it will download into your library automatically. That gives you a little more time to pre-order it at the discounted price.

EEC Payment Plans

We are also offering a special payment plan for the EEC which allows you take advantage of the Pre-Pub price, but then spread out your payments over the next few years if you’d like. This plan also gives you the flexibility to pay for it in whatever way works best for your budget. If you’re a pastor, this is the perfect way to apply your book budget to the EEC and still get the commentary at the lowest price. Learn more about the EEC Payment Plan.

Time is running out to pre-order the EEC while it’s on Pre-Pub. Pre-order it now!

As always, we are interesting in hearing what you think! Leave us a comment and let us know.
