The Anchor Yale Bible is a project of international and interfaith scope in which Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish scholars from many countries contribute individual volumes. The project is not sponsored by any ecclesiastical organization and is not intended to reflect any particular theological doctrine.

The Anchor Yale Bible is committed to producing commentaries in the tradition established half a century ago by the founders of the series, William Foxwell Albright and David Noel Freedman. It aims to present the best contemporary scholarship in a way that is accessible not only to scholars but also to the educated nonspecialist. Its approach is grounded in exact translation of the ancient languages and an appreciation of the historical and cultural context in which the biblical books were written supplemented by insights from modern methods, such as sociological and literary criticism.

This commentary set covers the entire Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and Apocrypha (with the exception of Deuteronomy 12-34) plus additional parallel volumes covering Joshua 1-12, Judges 1-12, and Ruth.

Bought this upgrade now at 12:36 PM order number starting with 4702.. I had used the Judges volume chapters 1-12 elsewhere for a long time and I was eager to add the new Ruth volume. Schipper's commitment to refresh this part shows and was well worth the $97 asking price to access Ruth to stay current on exegesis on how a marriage is formed. I'm content having the OT and NT sets separately - I would not do any further upgrades of the NT set beyond the new Revelations volume (did eventually do that particular upgrade on Dec. 8. 2019). I also got at the same Archaeology of the Land of the Bible (AYBRL for $90 for the three volumes).
