A commentary is a "collection of chapter-by-chapter or verse-by-verse explanations of either a portion or the whole of Scripture. Commentaries may be written by individual scholars, who are commonly assigned, based on their interests and expertise, to write on a particular book." - David R. Stewart, The Literature of Theology
Commentaries may be published as a single volume or as a series.
