This unique collection brings together two leading technical commentary series.
The Hermeneia series is designed to be a critical and historical commentary to the Bible without arbitrary limits in size or scope. It utilizes the full range of philological and historical tools, including textual criticism (often slighted in modern commentaries), the methods of the history of tradition (including genre and prosodic analysis), and the history of religion.
The Continental Commentary Series makes leading critical biblical scholarship from German and French scholars available to the English-speaking world. This series combines scholarly excellence with academic rigor to benefit pastors, students, and scholars of both the Old and New Testament.
Taken together, Hermeneia represents some of the best recent biblical scholarship . . . I have no hesitation in recommending them for students.

Hermeneia will be the benchmark and reference point for all future work.
