For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought.
Editors at the Time of Publication: John Adney Emerton, Charles E. B. Cranfield, Graham Norman Stanton
Original Series Editors: Samuel Rolles Driver, Alfred Plummer, Charles Augustus Briggs
The depth of analysis found in the International Critical Commentary (ICC) Series has yet to be surpassed in any commentary collection. One of the best features of this series is the extensive amount of background information given in each volume's introduction, where all of the analysis is provided before the actual commentary begins. Each volume packs more information into the introduction than you will often find in the body of most commentaries! Also consider that with the electronic versions of each volume, you will never need to leaf through the hundreds of pages in each volume searching for the passage you are studying.
Add the entire International Critical Commentary Series (53 Volumes)to your digital library.
Note: The Logos version has been made into three separate resource files for easier functionality. The purchase of this title will contain all three files covering Micah, Zephaniah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Obadiah, and Joel making it comparable to the single-volume print edition.
