Could anyone please share the full list of contributors in the above mentioned NT commentary?

 

Also how does this commentary stack against other similar works in your opinion?

 

I suppose it's a mix of pastoral/devotional commentary, but have no way of telling apart from Product details and poorly information on-line.

 

I'd greatly appreciate any feedback. Thanks in advance.


Blessings,
Tomi

Hi, Tomi!

 

I can only speak for my section of the commentary (Revelation), but it is an expansion of the doctoral dissertation I presented at University of Michigan in 1993 (David Noel Freedman, adviser). It is a very readable commentary, designed for those with neither Hebrew or Greek, who want to know what Revelation said to its original readers. As such, it stresses the deep background of Revelation: the Roman emperor's desire for an Imperial cult offering him divine honors, the prejudice and persecution facing the churches of Asia Minor, the Jewish feast of Tabernacles and its second temple association with the scion of David and eschatology. Jesus is the lamb that triumphs over a world where beasts rule men (an apocalyptic inversion!), where the surest path to eternal life is the testimony of the martyrs, and the greatest weapon against evil the prayers and praises of the saints.


Blessings,
