Overview

The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.

These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Editorial Reviews

Craig Blomberg
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
Peter Adam
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
D. A. Carson
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
Donald A. Hagner
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
Christianity Today
"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable."
Library Journal
Pannenberg offers a powerful argument that ``a theological doctrine of God that lacks metaphysics as its discussion partner falls into either a kerygmatic subjectivisim e.g., focusing on proclamation of the gospels or a thoroughgoing demythologization,'' or both simultaneously. Equally, metaphysics depends upon theology: ``philosophical reflection has been related from the outset to a religious awareness of the divine which preceded it historically.'' Pannenberg, a leading contemporary theologian, refers to a wide spectrum of historical and modern opinion from both disciplines, while addressing issues of subjectivity and action, anticipation and finitude, part and whole.
