4.5 stars - Excellent scholarly yet accesible treatment of Christology 31 May 2010
By David C. Leaumont - Published on
Format: Hardcover
W.E. Vine, one of the most notable Plymouth Brethren and author of 'Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words' and many other works, has been with the Lord for over 60 years now; however, his work lives on and remains a viable source on many Christians' shelves today. His commentaries show a practical scholarship that covers the Scriptures while balancing what people need to know with issues that arise in scholarly realms. He strikes a good balance of depth of study, succinctness and readability in his works. The introduction of this text explains Vine's writing well when it describes it as "a microscopic approach to expository teaching."

'Vine's Topical Commentary - Christ' will be familiar to those who own and have read the volumes of W.E. Vine's work since it is a topical compilation of his previous writings. The text is divided into three main sections: The Personhood and Work of Christ, The Life of Christ, and The Teachings of Christ. The sections are further indexed into Scriptural pericopes, such as 'The Perfect Servant,' 'The Atonement,' and 'The Vicarious Sacrifice of Christ' (all in section 1). Of these three sections, the first takes up 50% of the book, while sections 2 and 3 split the remaining evenly. While there is no index to this text, the Table fo Contents is detailed enough to aid in finding items for study. This text is currently available only in hardback and the initial run is the same size as Vine's other commentaries found on my shelf.

The text itself, although being greater than 60 years old, with some likely written prior to the turn of last century, is exquisitely readable. The verbiage is modern with the exception of the Scriptural quotes, which are in King James English. The quotes from Scripture are bolded for easy recognition (at least later in the book, read below for more on this). Greek terms are transliterated and explained well. Some have footnotes, but these are rare.

The only critiques I have for this text are that the verses used (and found in bold as I mentioned above) are often not referenced by book and verse notations. Often, the context or section titles provide clues to where the verses discussed are, but this is not consistent. Another inconsistency is the way Scripture is highlighted. The last section is the primary place where Scripture is highlighted in bold text. The first sections randomly highlight Scripture quotes in bold, and at other times just put quotes around it. Also, in the age of computer searching, inserting an index would have been fairly simple and would have helped this book. Finally, the entirety of Christ's character/nature is not treated in this text. For instance, Christ's Deity is not focused on like other aspects of His life are.

These critiques are minor, in my opinion. The text is a commentary of Christ, not a compendium of all information regarding Him. This is a superb source for easy study of aspects of Jesus and serves as a great addition to my library shelves. Whether you read it cover to cover or use it as a reference tool, this text can fulfill both roles.
