Carson Explains What Makes a Good Commentary

Commentaries.

Some of you see that word and want to yawn. Others see it and want to cheer. You hope to collect lots of them, sets of them. There’s an Amazon Wish List to prove it. But commentaries aren’t meant to be collected. They’re meant to be consulted—week in and week out as you prepare to unlock the treasure chest of God’s Word to God’s people once again.

In honor of the recently released seventh edition of D. A. Carson’s New Testament Commentary Survey (Baker Academic), we asked The Gospel Coalition’s co-founder and president a few questions about commentaries—what makes a good one, what they can’t do, common pitfalls, how much time we should give them, and more.
