Commentaries are at the heart of the expository preacher’s reading schedule. Commentaries multiply like rabbits, but they do so because (unlike rabbits) they are needed and scholarship continues to flourish. A commentary that is ten years old now seems dated, […]

Pastor’s Bookshelf: Revelation of John

posted by Scot McKnight

You can get folks to roll their eyes just mentioning the Book of Revelation, and mostly they do this because of the utter silliness of so much that is said and believed about the book these days — and, yes, […]

posted by Scot McKnight

I’ve been negligent in getting the final posts done on New Testament commentaries, and I apologize. Today we list valuable commentaries on 1 and 2 Peter and Jude. Again, I’m open to any suggestions you might have. No commentary is […]
