Product Description

The Paideia series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units (pericope's) rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Ths the commentary follows tghe original train of thought as indicated by the author and not necessarily modern artificial distinctions. On account this approach, one is able to grasp not only the exegetical-historical information of the passage, but also will be able to see thought in its coherent and theological expression.

Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, and (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings and attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader.

Finally, this series is enormously helpful and practical through its usage of small visual presentations of historical, exegetical, and theological information. Highly user friendly, and a great resource for college students or those who are at the intermediate level in study of the Bible.Aimed squarely at university and seminary students, this series is eminently useful for professors and preachers. It will also be of interest to theological libraries.

About the Paideia series: Paideia Commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:

  • Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
  • Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
  • Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
  • Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
  • Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format
