Old Testament Volumes in the Anchor Bible Commentary Series

Books in the Anchor Bible Commentary Series are shelved in the Cudahy Library Reference Collection, located in a space referred to as Stack Deck B.  You will see this space on the library floor map or you may ask for direction to it at the library Circulation Desk.

The volumes are shelved in order at the call number BS 192.2 .A1.  (Note that a volume for Deuteronomy 12-34 has not been published.) 

Other Bible Commentaries

Many more Bible commentaries are in the Cudahy Library Main Stacks.  They can be searched for in the library catalog using the keywords bible commentary genesis, replacing "genesis" with any book.  Alternatively, you may simply browse the shelves for a commentary of interest.  Look for them by Library of Congress call number on the third floor.

Historical Books: Genesis – Esther (BS 1231-1371)

Poetical Books: Job – Song of Solomon (BS 1411-1481)

Prophetic Books: Isaiah – Daniel (BS 1511-1551)

Minor Prophets: Hosea – Malachi (BS 1561-1671)

Deuterocanonical books: Tobit – 2 Maccabees (BS 1721-1825)

Rather than seek commentary on a particular passage, you may prefer to find commentary on a concept such as hospitality, marriage, prayer, mourning, or the Sabbath.  Search the library catalog using keywords such as bible commentary family which locates, among other possibilities, a book titled Abraham and all the Families of the Earth: A Commentary on the Book of Genesis 12-50.
