A New Verse-By-Verse Commentary Series from Lexham Press


The landscape for modern biblical commentaries is heavily skewed towards a scholarly approach to Scripture. These academic treatments of the text certainly advance biblical scholarship but often overlook the practical implications of the text for the modern Christian. For Pastors, church leaders, or lay students of the Bible in particular, biblical scholarship must go hand-in-hand with biblical application.

Lexham Press is proud to announce a New Testament commentary series from respected biblical scholar Grant Osborne. His seminal work, The Hermeneutical Spiral, has become a standard for biblical interpretation. As a culmination of his life’s ministry, Osborne is bringing his theological acumen to an accessible, application-focused commentary. The Osborne New Testament Commentaries interpret Scripture verse by verse, bridging the gap between scholarship and the church.

The first six volumes in this 19-volume series are now available on Pre-Pub—included in the bundle are the volumes on Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians & Philemon, and Revelation. Pre-order this brand new commentary series today and get 40% off the regular price!

In his words

After almost 30 years of teaching at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) as Professor of New Testament, Osborne gave his final lecture this year. His first post-retirement project is this New Testament commentary series. With the help of TEDS, we were able to interview Grant Osborne about his new endeavor.

  1. what a fantastic idea! a commentary for regular folk! i’m glad someone finally did it. or rather, is doing it.

  2. Of the many commentaries I used for my doctoral dissertation, which requires the use of the most recent research, Grant Osborne’s work stood head and shoulders above the others. I found it necessary to quote him throughout the dissertation.

    I plan to purchase his commentaries before viewing them because I am convinced of his ability to accomplish the goals set for this commentary series.
