Designed to strengthen the global church with a widely accessible, theologically sound, and pastorally wise resource for understanding and applying the overarching storyline of the Bible, this commentary series features the full text of the ESV Bible passage by passage, with crisp and theologically rich exposition and application. Editors Iain M. Duguid, James M. Hamilton, and Jay A. Sklar have gathered a team of experienced pastor-theologians to provide a new generation of pastors and other teachers of the Bible around the world with a globally minded commentary series rich in biblical theology and broadly Reformed doctrine, making the message of redemption found in all of Scripture clear and available to all.

  • Exegetically Sound: Self-consciously submissive to the flow of thought and lines of reasoning in the biblical text
  • Robustly Biblical-Theological: Reading the Bible as diverse yet bearing an overarching unity, narrating a single storyline of redemption culminating in Christ
  • Globally Aware: Aimed as much as possible at a global audience, with the goal of providing a biblical and theologically responsible resource for Bible students around the world
  • Broadly Reformed: Standing in the historical stream of the Reformation, affirming that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, taught in Scripture alone, for God’s glory alone
  • Doctrinally Conversant: Fluent in theological discourse; drawing appropriate brief connections to matters of historical or current theological importance
  • Pastorally Useful: Transparently and reverently “sitting under the text”; avoiding lengthy grammatical/syntactical discussions
  • Application Minded: Building brief but consistent bridges into contemporary living in both Western and non-Western contexts
  • Efficient in Expression: Economical in its use of words; not a word-by-word analysis but a crisply moving exposition
