M. Eugene Boring and Fred B. Craddock present this new one-volume commentary on the New Testament. Writing from the fundamental conviction that the New Testament is the people's book, Boring and Craddock examine the theological themes and messages of Scripture that speak to the life of discipleship. Their work clarifies matters of history, culture, geography, literature, and translation, enabling people to listen more carefully to the text. This unique commentary is the perfect resource for clergy and church school teachers who seek a reference tool midway between a study Bible and a multivolume commentary on the Bible.
"Here are two master biblical expositors at their creative best. Grand insights on every page!" William H. Willimon, Presiding Bishop of the United Methodist Church
"Whether you are a student or a veteran preacher, you will find fresh help and wisdom in this commentary." Barbara Brown Taylor, Columbia Theological Seminary
Z. A. Canter1 Stars Out Of 5Does Not Do Service to God's WordJanuary 21, 2013Z. A. CanterQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This commentary does not do service to the Word of God but is instead a dissappointing collection of liberal-critical ramblings. The authors critique doctrine, authorship, and fundamental tenants of the orthodox Christian faith, even to the point of entertaining universalism (if not embracing it). The authors go through leaps and bounds to interpret the New Testament as a fallable document of ancient history/myth and make all efforts to be inclusive to the point of denying the basic moral and social teachings of the New Testament.
