For these reasons I've learned to turn to Bruce first before I check my other commentaries. And if I don't have time to read several versions I tend to go to this one first.
I guess I would recommend preaching pastors/teachers to use Bruce to make sure that any great sounding phrases or things that might preach well from other commentators are really accurate.
If Bruce has a drawback it is in the very area that I love Stott for the most. Bruce doesn't always come up with great sounding phrases that would preach well. Stott does that all through his commentary.Read more ›
Each commentary is a superb example of Bruce's classic writing ability. Each sentence and paragraph is used to clearly convey specific points. The text is thoroughly documented, but quotations are concise. Fine details of the text are addressed along with broader themes of the passage or book at hand. Bruce's ability to explain the nuances of the Greek language (terms, declensions, and uses) significantly aids the reader in the interpretation of the books. The nature of the work is scholarly and does deal with the Greek language and complex details of the text. The purchaser should be aware that an attentive layman (one without formal seminary or Greek instruction) will understand and find about 75-80% of the work applicable for use in personal or didactic study. Greek words are not transliterated and a basic understanding of current theological dialogue is anticipated by the author.Read more ›
