A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
Fred G. Zaspel
I confess upfront that I have not read this massive work entirely – I have sampled it throughout and have read through a few sections in preparation for my own teaching and preaching. And I still believe that single-volume commentaries on select biblical books by specialists is more profitable. That said, I have to say that I found this work by Gundry surprisingly helpful and delightful. In relatively short shrift he works quickly through each book of the New Testament providing concise comments that guide the reader through the text, passage by passage. As a one-source New Testament commentary, it is really very good. The cover promo says that Gundry focuses on what is most useful for teaching and preaching, and judging from what I’ve read so far, he lives up to it.
A crowning achievement of Gundry’s lifetime of teaching the New Testament, and a valuable resource for pastors and lay-teachers alike.
