Here is a description of the series and a list of the commentaries as listed on Olive Tree's website:
The Pillar New Testament Commentary, designed for serious readers of the Bible, seeks above all to make clear the meaning of the text of Scripture as we have it. The scholars of the PNTC volumes interact with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.
The foundational approach used in this series recognizes "When God speaks to us through his Word, those who profess to know him must respond in an appropriate way,... with reverence, a certain fear, a holy joy, a questing obedience. These values should be reflected in the way Christians write. With these values in place, the Pillar commentaries will be warmly welcomed not only by pastors, teachers, and students, but by general readers as well." - D. A. Carson (General Editor of the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series)
