Interpretation Commentaries and iPreach alert!

Unfortunately, Westminster/John Knox Press made the decision to withdraw the electronic versions of Interpretation Commentaries series out of the IPreach database.  We no longer have online access to these 35 commentaries, although IPreach still lists the titles as current content. Meanwhile, in consultation with some faculty members, the library is trying to replace this online series with similar content.  Your suggestions are welcome. Other eBook Bible commentaries can be found in our local library catalog, by searching for the specific subject and commentary keyword (i.e. Galatians commentar*) and selecting the limit eBooks.
