Volume five of the Mercer Commentary on the Bible comprises commentaries on the Deuterocanonical/Apocryphal books which Martin Luther called 'useful and good for reading' yet did not consider of the same authority as Scripture.

This convenient yet thorough edition is for the classroom and for anyone who wishes to focus study on these particular texts. 137 Pages. Softcover from Mercer University Press.
