What People are Saying About This
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
"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."
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
