M. Eugene Boring and Fred B. Craddock present this new one-volume commentary on the New Testament. Writing from the fundamental conviction that the New Testament is the people's book, Boring and Craddock examine the theological themes and messages of Scripture that speak to the life of discipleship. Their work clarifies matters of history, culture, geography, literature, and translation, enabling people to listen more carefully to the text. This unique commentary is the perfect resource for clergy and church school teachers who seek a reference tool midway between a study Bible and a multivolume commentary on the Bible.

    Fine Addition to a Student or Teacher's Library

    A commentary for those of us who read biblical literature from theological and ideological points-of-view, this is a great addition to a church or personal library. Two of the top Disciples of Christ scholars enrich the reader's grasp of New Testament scripture. The price is fair. This is a fine resource for leaders of group Bible study or Sunday classes.
