What They're Saying

About recent Eerdmans Commentaries

— Paul N. Anderson, George Fox University

On Johannes Beutler’s A Commentary on the Gospel of John

“By interpreting the Fourth Gospel’s synchronicity of tradition within a diachronicity of situation, Johannes Beutler not only illumines our understandings of John’s message for its original audiences; he also unveils its meanings helpfully for readers today. A must-read for John’s interpreters!”

— Paul N. Anderson, George Fox University
— Pheme Perkins, Boston College

On Scot McKnight’s The Letter to the Colossians (NICNT)

“Insisting that Paul is above all a missionary and pastor for whom the new regime of King Jesus challenges the dark powers of imperialism, McKnight’s commentary offers pastors and other readers a fresh vision of church communities as the embodiment of God’s new creation.”

— Pheme Perkins, Boston College
— Robert W. Yarborough, Covenant Theological Seminary

On David deSilva’s The Letter to the Galatians (NICNT)

David deSilva offers careful verse-by-verse exposition, a dozen timely and wise excursuses, thorough review of introductory questions, and balanced attention to both Hellenistic and Jewish backgrounds. Laying special emphasis on the Spirit and the new era of salvation history in which Paul writes, deSilva has produced a work that will long rank among the most significant English-language Galatians commentaries.

— Robert W. Yarborough, Covenant Theological Seminary
— Peter Oakes, University of Manchester

On David deSilva’s The Letter to the Galatians (NICNT)

A commentary packed with value for church people and scholars alike. David deSilva is one of the world’s best at bringing historical social context into fruitful dialogue with judicious interpretation of the text.

— Peter Oakes, University of Manchester
— Stacy Davis, Review of Biblical Literature

On The Books of Haggai and Malachi (NICOT) by Mignon R. Jacobs

“Jacobs’ superior writing style and thoughtful analysis make her commentary an excellent reference for any reader. Her work is thorough and also readable. . . . Those who study and teach these biblical books will benefit from having Jacobs’s work at their fingertips.”

— Stacy Davis, Review of Biblical Literature
— Michael F. Bird, Ridley College

On Scot McKnight’s The Letter to Philemon (NICNT)

“A lucid and illuminating verse-by-verse analysis of Paul’s letter to Philemon. Scot McKnight soberly tackles the topics of Roman slavery, reconciliation, and Paul’s vision for churches to be dominated not by power relationships but by sibling-like relationships rooted in the new creation. McKnight makes this small letter stand tall among the writings of the Pauline corpus. A sheer joy to read!”

— Michael F. Bird, Ridley College
