5 Stars Out Of 5
January 8, 2016
I am a little spoiled over the format of the Old Testament companion volume by Tremper Longman in which every reviewed commentary gets its own paragraph. Carson's approach is something like (I bruitally paraphrase), "These commentaries are good; but these others are pretty crummy. These volumes are good but not as good as those others. This bunch is bad but not so bad as these others." In some cases, Carson begins with top recommendations but in others he begins with top recommendations for scholars but not ministers. What I am saying is that Carson does not follow a consistent pattern in each section. It is kind of difficult, therefore, to find the best choice for ME. Each section needs to be read slowly and carefully. On the positive side, Carson covers expansive territory in such a compact book. While the format is a little cumberson to work with, the actual information is very valuable. Highly recommended.
