Wish List of Old Testament Bible Commentaries for the Reformed Institute of Ministry (RIM)

The Old Testament commentaries included in this wish list were chosen mainly due to their generally conservative evangelical and Reformed perspective. The list includes introductory and advanced levels commentaries. Some of the commentaries require knowledge of the original language (Hebrew). Most are easily understandable and helpful for homiletical (preaching) and catechetical (teaching) purposes.

The New Testament commentaries wish list will follow in a week or two.
