in this multi-ethnic, multi-generational world community, its important to understand how the scriptures are viewed and interpreted from a variety of perspectives. scholarly works like this help facilitate dialogue with God's people everywhere. i am using this work as a resource for the new testament course that i'm teaching this fall (2010).

4/21/11 ...it's sidebars,notes,index and controversial 'perspectives' make it a book that is a more than good 'read'...The book states that the commentators are mostly Theology experts due to the commentators professions as teachers more than preachers....so they 'did good' in their ability to successfully compete well with their other peers, ,each of whom had a book (or books)of the New Testament to comment on....The explanation and commentary on the book of 'Revelations' is extra brilliant.4/21/11 abj

The commentary is great and the insight profound, from Massey to Callahan to Williams the authors provided new perspective and insight to the Biblical texts. It is important to include the perspective of scholars who are from our native land.
