The Tyndale Old Testament commentaries are some of the greatest introductory commentaries on the Old Testament, first began in the 1960’s, there have been several revisions and replacements for older volumes in the series, many of these replacements have been commentaries from the late noted scholar Derek Kidner, who wrote a plethora of commentaries for this phenomenal series.

Tyndale series is a good, if uneven, mid-level, conservative commentary series. Kidner's Psalms commentaries are good.
