[Longman] does for Old Testament ministers and theological students what D. A. Carson accomplishes for those of the New Testament in his New Testament Commentary Survey. Taken together, these two guides cover commentaries on the entire Bible...[Longman's] annotations are...very helpful to sort out theological perspectives and methodological approaches (as these inevitably influence one's exegesis and interpretation) of a seemingly endless list of Old Testament commentaries...This short guide will be very useful for building one's theological library, and for directing theological students to the best commentaries in English.
Pierre Constant, Eusebeia
This little book is an excellent aid for the study of the Old Testament. It is more than a bibliography; it is an annotated listing of many of the most important resources available in English...A 'must' for any serious student of the Bible.
Dianne Bergant, CSA, The Bible Today
Skillfully navigate[s] the dense terrain of the commentary world and offer[s] sage advice for those engaged in biblical study...The format of Longman's volume is...user-friendly...Readers will certainly be helped in making informed decisions about how best to spend both their time and money.
Mark R. Stevenson, Emmaus Journal
This is a very helpful annotated bibliography for beginning students or busy ministers, lay or ordained...This book will be of great benefit to those in search of works on biblical books, but not sure where to find them.
The Bible Today
A bibliographic tool worth consulting.
