Best New Bible Reference Works in the Last Year

Each year I survey the new works of Bible reference (commentaries, etc.) for Preaching Magazine. Though I have mentioned it previously, with the end of year lists, it seemed a good time to post a link to this year’s article. The article runs from summer to summer so Fall 2013 to Summer 2014 is represented here. I hope this is helpful in making decisions about resources to help in your preparation for preaching and teaching.

Here were my top 5 picks from the group (discussion of them can be found in the article):

N.T. Wright, The Case for the Psalms: Why They Are Essential (Harper One).

Bruce Waltke, James Houston, and Erika Moore, The Psalms as Christian Lament: A Historical Commentary (Eerdmans)

Dale Ralph Davis, The Message of Daniel (BST; IVP)

Craig Keener, Acts: An Exegetical Commentary, vol. 2 [3:1-14:28] (Baker)

Christopher Ash, Job: The Wisdom of the Cross (Preaching the Word Series; Crossway)
