Scott Conners3 Stars Out Of 5July 7, 2010Scott ConnersI purchased this commentary based in part on the good reviews, and also on my general appreciation for John Macarthur's preaching and writing. I have found the commentary helpful and insightful in many ways, but have to say that his handling of the section on spiritual gifts reads and feels much different than the rest of the commentary. Usually I find Macarthur lets the text make the points, but in this instance, he labors his points and somehow tries to get the text to support them. Arguments from silence especially detract from his credibility of interpretation in this area. A person would be hard pressed to arrive at the conclusions he sets forth, just by reading the Scripture. Uncharacteristic and disappointing, in an otherwise helpful work.
S. Barnette1 Stars Out Of 5May 17, 2010S. Barnette"He denies the possibility of modern uses of the spiritual gifts while affirming those gifts given to all Christians. This is typical translate-as-long-as-it-agrees-with-your-personal-theology. Paul, throughout 1 Corinthians 14 affirms his personal participation in what MacArthur "denies [as] the possibility of modern uses." Yet nowhere in the Scriptures or Church History is this affirmed.
Dan Nolan- Sr.5 Stars Out Of 5February 19, 2010Dan Nolan- Sr.Love John MacArthurs work...thats why I am collecting his commentaries...one at a time or a few at a time...what ever I can afford it seems to me to be alittle more practical.
