The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

Hagner writes from a moderately conservative Evangelical perspective. The comments on the Greek words and phrases are extensive and helpful. The bibliographies are fairly exhaustive. Those interested in textual criticism will appreciate Hagner's efforts in that area. There are other commentaries that focus more deeply on theological concerns. Also, due to the intent of the series, practical applications are few and far between. But this is a very helpful book for advanced seminarians and scholars.
