"If there's only one book that a student can get on NT background, then this has to be it. Its breadth and depth is unmatched by anything that I've had access to in my studies." (Nick Norelli, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth (rdtwot.wordpress.com), June 16, 2008)
"An excellent resource for students who are eager to continue their research into the cultural contexts of the New Testament. Although it is a bit beyond most beginners, that is an advantage to those who need an intermediate level vehicle." (David W. Chapman, Presbyterion: Covenant Seminary Review 32, no. 2)
