I have been using John Glynn's Commentary and Reference Survey 10th edition and have found it to be an indispensable source. I was showing my students this most recent edition and one student commented that he wished his professors had drawn his attention to a resource like this at the beginning of his college career. Now in all of my classes I intend to introduce my students to Glynn's book. I know of resource like this which includes commentaries, surveys of both testaments, background studies, linguistic tools, systematics, church history, and in this latest edition a new section on Exegetical and Bible Study Computer Programs. Undergirding all of this is Glynn's sensitivity to the needs of lay people, Bible college/seminary students and pastors as he offers judicious comment and guidance suited to their needs and their pockets!
