Only renowned Theologians with certain specializations are invited to write the Sacra Pagina Bible Series.
( Read the Publishers; remarks in the development of the series.It is very detailed study of the particular Book.
e.g. John Malrony who was head of the Theology Department of the Australian Catholic University ( now moved to an American University) wrote the commentary to the Gospel of St John. He is a "Johannine Scholar".
(When you make references in your Thesis, Professors know of the depth of your work!)
It is an execellent collection available is probably all Catholic Libraries.
If I am not mistaken the RSV text is used. I had many of the NT series which for personal reasons; I donated to our lacal Pastoral Instituew. - Highly recommended for the serious student of Sacred Scriptures.
Another very good Commentary Series is the Anchor Bible Study series.- with authors like Raymond Brown, etc.). - Very "heavy" writing approach (In my opinion).
