"Very useful for preachers, teachers, and interested church members who may want to know more about the contribution of the socio-rhetorical approach to the study of the Bible and its social background. In that respect, this volume is very rich."
"The value of this book is that Witherington offers a helpful exegesis of the text and wrestles with the issues that each book raises resulting in a commendable resource for students and pastors."
"A perfect volume for those who might want to teach or preach frombut not necessarily specialize inone of these letters, this commentary serves as an excellent basic reference for these often less familiar and under appreciated New Testament sermons."
Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Helpful!November 11, 2016Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This volume joins Letters and Homilies for Hellenized Christians Volumes 1 and 2 for Witheringtons three-volume set that covers the General Epistles including the Pastorals, Epistles of John and of Peter, and in this volume, Hebrews, James, and Jude. I always marvel at his output as he has written on most of the NT and other subjects as well.
Having reviewed the other two volumes, I feel he keeps up his standard of work here. He keeps that socio-rhetorical emphasis that he is famous for as well. I cant always agree with his conclusions, but they are never uninteresting.
He deals with Hebrews first. He summarizes the different viewpoints on authorship well (he favors Apollos) and rightfully emphasizes Christology to good effect. He sees Hebrews as a rhetorical masterpiece and I agree. His commentary, though I would disagree at points, was helpful.
I chuckle at how he writes his Introductions for each book because he approaches them in a different order each time and just seems to start at random. Still, he gets it covered each time.
Next, he tackles James. As you might imagine with his emphases, he writes on the social ethos of Jamess audience and home congregation with good food for thought. I found his thoughts on Jude even better.
This is a quality commentary of the acedemic type and I recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
