Commentary List

Moore College’s faculty are often asked to recommend biblical commentaries for students, alumni and friends. On this page we have listed commentaries for each book of the Bible.

Because we’ve limited the list to 2-3 commentaries per biblical book, we haven’t been able to include every good commentary. For a more detailed list of commentaries, check out www.bestcommentaries.com

This list also appears annually in the Moore College Societas magazine.
