The DiscoverE index, the best location for searching for books at Emory, has been indexed by Biblical books, and so it is relatively easy to search for commentaries by Biblical book. To do so, go to DiscoverE and click "Advanced Search." Search based on subject by choosing "Subject" in the first dropdown. Change the second dropdown to "contains." Then type in "Bible Commentaries " followed by the book in which you are interested (see screenshot below). When you press "Search" the results will contain those items at Emory that have been indexed as commentaries on that particular book. You may want to sort the result list a particular way or choose criteria from the left-side menu of the results page to narrow your results.
The library has been working with the Candler faculty to compile lists of recommended commentaries on each book of the Bible. To see those, follow the links below.
