Q. Are there scholarly bible commentaries online?

See the IVP Bible Commentary
Unfortunately, scholarly biblical commentary publishers are slow to make their commentaries available online for purchase. We are slowly acquiring quality commentaries in digital format, and they will come up through a search in the Library Catalog or One Search tool. However, this small collection is growing slowly as the titles are published, so we recommend using other options to supplement your research.
Distance students can make inter-library loan requests for commentaries available for checkout in Regent Library's general collection. Students may request that physical books be shipped to them free of charge (though they are responsible to pay return shipping or bring them to campus) or they may request a book chapter. Through a book chapter request, you may have pages of a book scanned and made available to you as a PDF. This process usually has minimal turnaround time and is available at no cost to you.

We also recommend that distance students search for other nearby libraries that have commentaries available--universities and seminaries are your best bets. As distance students you can take advantage of our library card reimbursement to help with the cost of accessing local materials.
