Biographical Note for Believers Church Bible Commentary Series Editorial Council :

The Believers Church Bible Commentary Series is a cooperative publishing project undertaken by Brethern in Christ Church, Brethern Church, Church of the Brethern, Mennonite Brethern Church, and Mennonite Church / Mennonite Church USA.  The series offers lay readers interpretations and study guides for the scriptures.  Quoting the Believers Church Bible Commentary Series Web site:  "The series is based on the conviction that God is still speaking to all who will listen, and that the Holy Spirit makes the Word a living and authoritative guide for all who want to know and do God's will."

(...)

"Critical issues are not avoided, but neither are they moved into the foreground as debates among scholars. The series aids in the interpretive process, but it does not attempt to supersede the authority of the Word and Spirit as discerned in the gathered church."

The editorial council set the goals and tone of the series, recruited writers, and  shepherded them through the writing process.
