A Good Study Bible

A Good study bible is a good starting place  - the swiss army knife of bible study.

They usually have a short parallel commentary for the bible text, a concordance for looking up biblical words, maps and illustrations as well as all sorts of other things, from short articles to more thematic or topical explorations

For Everyone Series


Tom Wrights ‘For everyone’ series on the New Testament are among the best starters. They are well written, easy to read and are underpinned by great scholarship from one of the foremost theologians of our age. Each New Testament book of the bible has 1 or 2 books to go with it. 

There are increasingly some available for Old Testament books written by others like John Goldingay.

The Bible Speaks Today


You will find some more depth in the Bible Speaks Today Series with a lot of input from great Pastor-Teachers like John Stott. These dig in further to the text and always have useful practical applications too - much loved by preachers!

Word Commentaries


These are written by a range of scholars specialising in different books of the bible. The Word Commentaries have very detailed exposition (John Nolland has 3 volumes and 1200 pages for Luke alone).


Interpretation Commentaries


The Interpretation series draw in more literary and creative analyses.

NICNT / NICOT


Immense, meaty and very very deep. These are big efforts from some of the top scholars of our day akin to the Word Commentaries in style and feel. 
Doug Moo’s commentary on Romans weighs in at over 1000 pages - you have been warned...

Pillar Commentaries

Similarly scholarly, rich and through.
