Featured Site: The Kretzmann Project

The Kretzmann Project is the online version of Paul E. Kretzmann's Popular Commentary of the Bible, first published in 1924 but now out of print. Kretzmann was a pastor and professor in the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod and later helped form the Orthodox Lutheran Conference, thus the conservative perspective of the commentary.

I have the four-volume set in my library and refer to it often, although it is brief and not as comprehensive as other academic commentaries. Having said that, in a busy week when there are many hospital calls and other family responsibilities, it's helpful to use in a pinch.
