As the edition to the title shows, Craig Keener's The Gospel of Matthew is now a part of the widely successful "Socio-Rhetorical" series by Ben Witherington. With an added addendum called "Matthew and Greco-Roman Rhetoric" this latest addition keeps the same historical and social focus that so defined it at its initial publication. Now available in paper back, it remains firmly built on impeccable and exhaustive research that is combined with insightful analysis of the text and its meaning. This commentary will prove useful for years to come and is in many ways the current standard in Matthean commentary.More...

This commentary to present an exposition of the Fourth Gospel as the Christian Church adopted it. Among other things, this means that it proceeds from the canonical form in which the Gospel has come down to us from ancient times-taking into account the text-critical problems with which the multiplicity of manuscripts and textual witnesses confront us. The author is especially interested in presenting a theological exegesis of the Gospel and dealing with the significance of the gospel message that the Evangelist had in view as he wrote.

In this commentary, Tom Wright captures the verve and sparkle of the prison letters. Paul wrote the letters while in prison facing possible death, but their passion and energy are undimmed. They reveal Paul's longing to see young churches grow in faith and understanding rooted in Jesus himself, and to see this faith worked out in practice, in one case, through the rehabilitation of a runaway slave.
