5 Stars Out Of 5
Very well researched and presented
March 27, 2015
Commentary is generally from an Arminian perspective; yet Osborne sometimes parts with generally accepted positions if his own research shows that the going wisdom is not supportable from the Scriptures. Osborne's scholarship is uncomfortably honest. While he is not Calvinist, he is not shy about frequently and favorably quoting Calvin and Augustine. The writer comes uncomfortably close to supporting the doctrine of "Total Depravity." If Osborne "cut to the chase" more, the commentary would be shorter; but he presents opposing views quite a bit before presenting his conclusions. Interacting with writers of opposing views is a strength of this commentary. It's not a quick read; but there is a reward for reading through it.
