    This commentary is the best I have come across of the one volume commentaries It's layout and its approach to each book of the Bible is so very clear and its review of previous commentators is comprehensive I recently came across it in the library of Tymawr Convent in Wales and decided there and then that I must have my own copy I find it invaluable as background reading for the preparation of sermons and for Bible study It is what I would call healthily scheptical in its approach or if you prefer wide ranging which is of course what you would expect from such editors as John Barton and John Muddiman

    I never formally studied biblical literature or theology so I do need to look things up from time to time to understand the context of what I'm reading I purchased several commentaries but found this absolutely the best one and it has become the one I always go to A nice neat compact book a decent size easy to navigate

    I was hoping for a plain english study bible but it uses complex language and does not explain the bible passages in plain ordinary english More for academics I feel


  4. says:

    This book is an excellent commentary and companion to the bibleIt is cut from a very broad cloth and is open ended than one might haveexpected It admits some areas of uncertainty and accepts some alternative viewsIt is of extreme value in offering interpretation in areas where the meaning is uncertainor in explaining confusing languageIt is strongly recommended to anyone wishing to study the Bible for whatever reason


  5. says:

    Absolutely what I was looking for a concise up to date commentary to accompany my studies Recommended

    This was brought for the bible study group It is very informative and well written and gives all the historical context behind the biblical passages My only criticism would be that the print is uite small but otherwise it is a good reference book which would be suitable for a wide readership
