About the Author

The list of contributors, editors, and consultants on the project is a veritable Who's Who of biblical and theological scholarship, representing all major traditions and schools of thought liberal and conservative. Leander Keck, of the Yale Divinity School, is the primary editor of the series.
The volumes were published individually, and can be purchased individually, which is a good thing, given that they are a bit expensive. But for any serious biblical scholar, preacher, student, or enthusiast, they are invaluable.
The eleventh volume of the New Interpreter's Bible is the volume that completes the Pauline corpus in the New Testament, from 2 Corinthians to Philemon.Read more ›
Here is Andrew Lincoln, author of the now-standard Word Biblical Commentary on Ephesians, speaking on that letter's close theological cousin, Colossians. Here also is Morna Hooker, author of the incisive Black's New Testament Commentary on Mark, expertly leading us through Paul's letter to the Philippians. Joining them is Pheme Perkins, author of the Mark entry in this same series (New Interpreter's Bible, Volume VIII), drawing here especially from the Dead Sea Scrolls as she addresses Ephesians [note that Perkins' commentary was also presented as part of the Abington New Testament Commentary series (1997), though for the NIB she has added numerous pastoral "Reflection" sections, typical of this series].
Add in J. Paul Sampley on the Second Letter to the Corinthians (his commentary on 1 Corinthians is presented in Vol. X of this series), Abraham Smith on Paul's correspondence with the Thessalonians, Richard Hays on the Letter to the Galatians, James D. G. Dunn on the Pastoral Epistles (Timothy and Titus) and cap-off the volume with Cain Hope Felder on Philemon and you have a guide to the briefer Pauline literature which can hardly be overlooked by any seeking to understand what Paul (and those who attempted to emulate him) sought to convey of his ministry, his thinking, and his encounter with Christ.
