Introduction -- Pt. 1. The Biblical story, Genesis-Esther -- Pt. 2. Psalms and Wisdom -- Pt. 3. The prophetic books -- Pt. 4. The Apocrypha -- Pt. 5. Books in the for of narrative (The Gospels and Acts) -- Pt. 6. Books in the form of letters (The Pauline letters and the general letters to the churches).
The Commentary covers all of the Hebrew Bible, as well as the books of the Apocrypha and those of the New Testament, and thus addresses the biblical canons of Judaism, Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestantism. its innovative format covers the books of the Bible in three ways: general essays setting the literary, cultural, and historical context for the entire Bible; articles introducing major sections of the Bible; commentaries on the individual books themselves.
