A few years ago, a core group of Bible scholars began to dream of what a new Bible commentary could look like. What if a new commentary series could be published—a kind of commentary pastors could use for sermon preparation, and a standard reference work seminary students could consult for exegetical research? What if this commentary was designed and written primarily for a digital environment—and especially for use in Logos Bible Software?
The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary began out of those conversations. Now, that dream is about to become a reality. In less than two weeks, the first volume in this brand new commentary series will be released.
Think of what a milestone this really is. It’s the first major Bible commentary series to be published in many years—long after everyone said it couldn’t be done. It’s the first Bible commentary series ever to be written with a digital environment in mind. It’s the first major Bible commentary where the authors are using Logos Bible Software to research and write the commentary. (Maybe you’ve asked yourself: “Would *insert your favorite commentary name here* have been better if all its authors had used Logos in their research?”) This list goes on and on.
We’ve been amazed and humbled by the number of people who have gotten behind the project—who’ve supported it, endorsed it, and pre-ordered it. If there was ever a question of whether a new commentary series was needed, that question has now been answered by all the people who have committed to making it happen.
