Product Description

Review

Review from previous edition It draws on a broad spectrum of critical scholarship to provide an authoritative guide to reading the books of the Bible, and is likely to dominate this section of the market for a long time to come... It puts the resources of scholarship at the disposal of a wide readership... students will derive excellent guidance from it. Those who have primarily an interest in the Bible as literature will find it a source of new insights. Preachers, teachers and pastors will find it enormously helpful. This commentary is a milestone in biblical scholarship. The editors deserve our thanks and congratulations - and a wide readership. (Expository Times, June 2002)

What is new is the assurance that there is a body of sound learning on which one may base one's prayer or sermon or reflection, that is not out to destroy faith nor to bolster any one expression of it. (New Directions, vol. 4, no. 78)

With its clear typeface and pleasing layout, fairly up-to-date bibliography, well-designed maps and array of distinguished contributors, this is in deed a commentary for the twenty-first century. (Gabriel Josipovici, Times Literary Supplement, 21 December 2001)

For the "novice", this work is a treasure trove. Expert scholars will likewise find much of interest, particularly in areas other than their own specialities. (Louvain Studies)

This book should be a helpful guide to the general reader, for whom it is intended, and it should certainly find a place in every library with any interest in the Bible. (Journal of Theological Studies)

The Oxford Bible Commentary can be recommended as an up-to-date, vast treasury of biblical knowledge. (International Review of Biblical Studies)

The emphasis is on reading and understanding the books of the Bible. It puts the resources of scholarship at the disposal of a wide readership - not simply the academic specialists but a range of readers with widely differing interests and concerns. Students will derive excellent guidance from it. Those who have primarily an interest in the Bible as literature will find it a source of new insights. Preachers, teachers and pastors who recognize the essential link today between scholarship and exposition, will find it enormously helpful. (The Expository Times)

Excellent model of what the finest reference books should be ... It is written for a wide readership and is expressed clearly without jargon or obscurity, and should prove invaluable not only to the priest and the student, but to the ordinary person in the pew ... will be invaluable for any religious or specialist library. (The Irish Catholic)

This rich, far-reaching commentary ... is warmly recommended ... Generous coverage of the full gamut of critical and postcritical approaches characterizes the many fine introductory essays, and sensitive attention to theological and literary insights find ample space in the book-by-book commentries that also do full justice to "traditional" scholarly concerns. (Choice)

For its comprehensiveness, diversity and liveliness, it is a valuable and exciting resource. It deserves and richly rewards careful attention. (Theology Journal)

A very superior commentary indeed ... and despite its imposing bulk and imprimatur, a very human book. (Gabriel Josipovici, Times Literary Supplement)

...an authoritative guide to reading the books of the Bible...a very accessible volume for everyone (Caroline Woollard, South Wales Argus)

This is a very scholarly approach to each of the gospels which focuses on the differences and similarities between them, so as to identify the theology and preoccupations of each individual evangelist. The diversity revealed has deepened and enriched my faith
