Talk about Numbers–Ruth (The Expositor's Bible Commentary)

This volume strikes the perfect balance between scholarship and readability. Great for an informed practitioner's library. It upholds the Bible as authoritative, but also is not afraid to engage in modern criticism.
The final volume in the revised version of the Expositor's Bible Commentary and well worth the wait. This commentary covers the book of Numbers through the book of Ruth. A great deal!
The expositors Bible commentary has been recognized as one of the leading Commentary series for the past quarter-century. Having started in 1978 and completed in 1992 is Commentary series was in sore need of a revised updated Edition. Therefore in 2008 the expositors Bible commentary begin its revised Edition of all of its 13 volumes of commentary. Completed in 2012 this Commentary series included updated commentaries of almost every book included in the previous version as well as fleshing out a previous commentaries as well.
Perhaps one the best updated version in this Commentary series is that of the commentary on the books of Numbers through Ruth by Ronald B. Allen (Numbers), Michael Alan Grisanti (Deutronomy), Helene Dallaire (Joshua), Mark J. Boda (Judges), and George Schwab (Ruth). Weighing in at over 1000 Pages each book gets a mid-level commentary treatment, yet each individual commentary has invaluable exegesis that most pastor’s will greatly appreciate.
This book touted as one of the best volumes in the series. Each passage is thoroughly treated looking not only at the Hebrew text but dealing with critical questions, exegetical points, and practical application. This commentary truly is for both the pastor and Scholar. Furthermore it is not inaccessible to the Layman who desires to get a thorough treatment of this section of Holy Scripture for their understanding. I highly recommend this commentary as the first pick of any Pastor for a series on the books of Numbers’-Ruth as well as to the scholar who is looking to write a paper on a specific theme or passage in these books. You can truly not go wrong with this superb commentary.
With that said are a few issues I have with the commentary on Ruth. Schwab takes an unorthodox view of Ruth and Boaz on the threshing room floor to be a sexual encounter between them. His arguments will interesting do not bear out in the text and makes the rest of his commentary on the book of Ruth unhelpful if used for exegetical preaching, but very helpful if writing a paper on the subject.

The Expositor's Bible Commentary - Revised Edition on Numbers-Ruth
Tremper Longman III & David E. Garland, General Editors
The Expositor’s Bible Commentary Revised Edition (EBC-R) seeks to provide “a comprehensive yet succinct commentary that guides one to the gist of the text’s meaning.” This is where this commentary series excels. The EBC-R will provide its reader with a good overview of the text and its meaning. This volume (2 of 13) covers the books of Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges and Ruth. The translation used for this commentary is the NIV.

Each commentary in this series contains an introduction written by the author containing general background information regarding the book. The bibliography is included in this section which is helpful as it provides the reader with additional commentaries to read as well as knowing where some of the author’s research and thoughts come from. The outlines are always a blessing to me, as they show how the author sees the book flow. The layout of the commentary makes it very easy to read. Each section of Scripture is written in bold with a grey background and is single column, making it easy to find a particular verse quickly. The commentary section follows and is double columned, with bold verse numbers at the start of each commentary section for a particular verse. There are also a Notes section and a Reflections section that contains some extra thoughts. The layout is different from other commentaries that I have read, but once I got used to it I appreciated how easy it was to navigate.

As for the commentary itself, the EBC-R is very readable for pastors and laymen. There is not the critical depth of some commentaries that would confuse many lay people, but it is also not so shallow that the reader will not grow in their understanding. The commentary section on Numbers is written by Ronald B. Allen, senior professor of Bible exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary. The commentary section on Deuteronomy is written by Michael A. Grisanti, professor of Old Testament at The Master's Seminary. The commentary section on Joshua is written by Hélène Dallaire, Associate Professor of Old Testament at Denver Seminary. The commentary section on Judges is written by Mark J. Boda, professor of Old Testament at McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The commentary section on Ruth is written by George M. Schwab, associate professor of Old Testament at Erskine Theological Seminary. What stands out in this commentary is the wealth of OT knowledge from its contributors. The drawing point to this commentary is that with the knowledge that it's contributors possess it is still highly readable and accessible to a wide audience. This commentary provides a great introduction to the themes, history and theological truths found in Numbers - Ruth. At 1350 pages it holds plenty of insight to guide the reader through these 5 OT books. As with other commentaries in this series I found this one to be a nice addition to my library. While I do not agree with every point the authors may make, there is valuable insight to be found in its pages. This serves as a very nice introductory commentary that is priced very affordable for what you get in return.
