Extremely helpful
5 stars By Ian Thomason, Jun 02 2016
Bible students of the 21st century are spoiled for choice with respect to commentaries. With so many series and stand-alone volumes available, it's easy to become overwhelmed when viewing the shelves in the academic section of the local Koorong store! Enter Dr John Evans. In this, his tenth edition of 'A Guide to Biblical Commentaries and Reference Works' Evans provides a near exhaustive, annotated summary of Old and New Testament commentaries, as well as an overview of other reference works. He surveys the gammut of commentaries, including outstanding older works that can be sourced second-hand, and then provides his recommendations based on a volume's usefulness to theological students, ministers, and well-read laypeople.
There are similar works available that address individual testaments (e.g. by Longman on the Old Testament, and Carson on the New); as well as guides that cover both (such as those by Bauer and Glynn). However, in my opinion Evans provides the greatest coverage of published works; he has the most detailed and helpful comments, and he is generally the  best informed with respect to the strengths and weaknesses of established as well as emerging volumes and series. My sole gripe is Evans doesn't provide any guidance at all on commentaries that target the Septuagint, and those for the apocryphal or deutero-canonical, and pseudepigraphal books.
Buy this guide; you won't be disappointed!
