The Understanding the Bible Commentary Series helps readers navigate the strange and sometimes intimidating literary terrain of the Bible. These accessible volumes break down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. The contributors tackle the task of interpretation using the full range of critical methodologies and practices, yet they do so as people of faith who hold the text in the highest regard. Pastors, teachers, and lay people alike will cherish the truth found in this commentary series.

I am constantly dissapointed by this commentary. It shews the questions I want answered and I have read better commentaries in this size. Barrett and Morris for instance. Read full review

This is a great piece of work on 1 Corinthians. It is brief due to the confines of the series, but it is very well written and insightful. I recently used it along with Fee, Thiselton and Hays and found it to be a great help. Read full review
