Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"... this is an extremely valuable commentary that should take its place beside the best on the shelf. In the preface Evans states that this work 'is not written primarily for the scholar', but he expresses his hope, nonetheless, that 'scholars will find it useful' ... They will."
Nicholas G. Piotrowski, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
