Editorial Reviews


"The commentaries are refreshingly unique in their use of polyvocal dialogue and reconstructions, and the writing is clear and generally accessible. I highly recommend this text for introductory and elective biblical studies courses and to churches that value serious, relevant, informative biblical studies that engage justice issues like incarceration, modern-day human trafficking and sex slavery, and violence against women and gender equity."
Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology

"Focusing on three letters from the Christian Scripture, this commentary features a unique social justice lens. A volume necessary to any preacher or teacher of these text."

"The Wisdom Commentary series offers a model for a key way of doing contemporary scholarship: a cooperative endeavor, bringing in voices of several people, most of whom identify themselves explicitly and each of whom brings to the interpretation both their expertise and their range of real-world experiences. There are tremendous resources for reflection on these texts in each of the commentaries."
Journal for the Study of the New Testament
