John Dyer (Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary) just launched www.BestCommentaries.com. It's goal is to help
Bible students at all levels to make good, informed decisions about which commentaries they should purchase and use by providing a constantly updated biblography of commentaries on each book of the Bible and collecting reviews, ratings, and prices of commentaries from a variety of sources.

The most notable sources are the published books by D. A. Carson, Tremper Longman, III, John Glynn, and Jim Rosscup. In addition to these print publications, the web resources of John Piper's Desiring God Ministries, R. C. Sproul's Ligonier Ministries, and the Denver Seminary Journal are in the site. The data from these books and websites have been used with permission from the respective owners and aggregated to provide an average score representing a wider array of biblical scholarship than would be possible with a single book. These books are still extremely valuable and should be consulted directly along side of this website.
My favorite feature is his compilation of forthcoming commentaries. Also included:
  1. the top two commentaries on each book of the Bible
  2. OT commentaries
  3. NT commentaries
  4. series
  5. authors
