The Mercer Commentary on the Bible should be praised for how much it does say. Having all this information...makes it especially useful. The contributors write clearly.... They write for the church, laity as well as clergy. I am sure I will refer to this commentary often. William M. Ramsay (In Interpretation).The special contribution of the Mercer Dictionary of the Bible] is its thorough, up-to-date scholarship and large amount of information offered in just a single, inexpensive volume.
