Baker Books, Nov 1, 2007 - Religion - 1280 pages
Readers of the New Testament often encounter quotes or allusions to Old Testament stories and prophecies that are unfamiliar or obscure. In order to fully understand the teachings of Jesus and his followers, it is important to understand the large body of Scripture that preceded and informed their thinking. Leading evangelical scholars G. K. Beale and D. A. Carson have brought together a distinguished team to provide readers with a comprehensive commentary on Old Testament quotations, allusions, and echoes that appear from Matthew through Revelation. College and seminary students, pastors, scholars, and interested lay readers will want to add this unique commentary to their reference libraries.

Indexing isn't real user-friendlyUser Review - Christianbook.com
The exegesis is a little TOO detailed. Maybe if the writers gave a briefer summary before going into so much detail. On the other hand, it is very thorough. It is organized in New Testament order - so if you are studying the Old Testament there is not a straightforward method for keying your study to NT quotes or alusions. There is an index keying OT passages to page numbers in the commentary; but that's real cumbersome. I am thinking that this book may be more useful in a bible software (such as OliveTree) that alerts users to resources that discuss the passage being studied. So, if I am studying some passage in the OT that is quoted in the NT I would get an alert that this OT passage is discussed in the Beale/Carson commentary. Unfortunately, I already own the real-world version of the book and don't want to spend more money on a bible-software version.
