Editorial Reviews

Wilbur M. Smith
"I would urge all ministers and teachers of the New Testament to secure (this volume). There is nothing quite like (it) in our language, abreast of the latest scholarship, frankly facing all major New Testament problems and written with the deep conviction that these are, indeed, inspired documents. (Endorsement for the original edition)."
Michael Green
"The bedside companion (especially before examinations )of a generation of theological students. (Endorsement for the original edition)."
Ronald A. Ward
"The author is to be congratulated--and thanked. This will be a standard work for a generation. (Endorsement for the original edition)."
