Good but not great
on September 2, 2013
I have a ton of commentaries on scripture, including everyone from this series that has been released. The original Gospel one released was by Mary Healy on the Gospel of Mark. I was absolutely blown away. She set a standard so high it is hard to live up to it. When this commentary came out I was excited to get another one on a Gospel, but was highly disappointed by elementary insights the authors brought to the table. I would hate to assume that in writing this commentary they didn't pray and meditate over each passage but often times it seems that they are just giving a very obvious and basic analysis of the Holy Scripture.
I have such high praise for every other one of the books in this series but have found this one a bit disappointing.
