This series places the accent on 'theological' and reflects current interpretive ferment marked by growing resistance to the historical-critical project. It may be that scripture interpretation is too important to be left to the exegetes, and so a return to the theologians.'

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
"[Peter] Leithart does an eminently satisfying work of exposition [in 1 & 2 Kings], although his work engages age-old questions of exegetical method. . . . Leithart's work [is] stimulating in its unabashedly theological interpretive stance. Such a starting point for the exegetical task inquires differently of the text and renders fresh applications and observations. The two disciplines of biblical and theological studies can only benefit from cross-disciplinary engagement and, certainly, Leithart demonstrates that both disciplines can be used critically and in service of the Church."--Lissa M. Wray Beal, Toronto Journal of Theology
"For many Christians, Deuteronomy is another collection of arcane Jewish laws that have no bearing on church life in the least. . . . [Telford] Work's contribution is useful inasmuch as he actually helps readers think about just how Deuteronomy could be applied to the church. This is something many commentaries simply ignore. . . . This commentary will force readers to remember it is not enough to leave this wonderful revelation in its historical context."--Steven H. Sanchez, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"The unique feature of the Brazos series is to have theologians provide exposition of specific biblical books. In this it follows a longstanding church tradition in which theology was drawn from scripture and was not alien to or estranged from it. [In Revelation, Joseph] Mangina . . . provides a thoughtful and competent analysis of this complex New Testament book. He certainly engages biblical scholarship, but his focus is appropriately on the fundamental theological perspective of Revelation, which he sees as a radically christological focus."--Donald Senior, CP, The Bible Today
"[Ephraim] Radner's commentary [on Leviticus] is full of stimulating insights from which biblical scholars will benefit. . . . Those who work hard will profit from the often-stimulating associations he finds between Leviticus and other parts of the Bible. Moreover, his commentary provides the first thorough synthesis of premodern Christian and Jewish interpretation of Leviticus."--Leigh Trevaskis, Review of Biblical Literature
