This is one of the most difficult books on which to teach. There are not very many excellent books on this portion of Holy Writ.
The best by far is Seow’s commentary in the Anchor Bible. Also excellent are Provan, Fox (A Time to Tear Down & a Time to Build Up), Kruger, Ferguson (The Pundit’s Folly), and Bridges.
Second-tier are Longman, Crenshaw, Lohfink, Barton, Murphy, Garrett, Brown, Gordis, Luther, Hengstenburg, Hubbard, Whybray, Leupold, and Towner (NIB). The reason Longman’s commentary is not first-tier is because I cannot agree with him on his interpretation of the key passage 12:9-14.
Forthcoming: Schoors (HCOT).
Conservative are Provan, Seow, Ferguson, Bridges, Garrett, Luther, Hengstenburg, Hubbard, Leupold
Moderate: Kruger, Crenshaw, Lohfink, Murphy, Brown, Towner, Longman (only moderate on this book; on others I would classify him as conservative)
Liberal: Fox, Barton, Gordis, Whybray
Don’t know about Schoors.
