Endorsements

"The scholarship behind the New American Commentary is first rate, but the books are written clearly enough for ordinary people to understand them....These books bring out something of the profound meaning of the original writers."
Leon Morris, Melbourne, Australia

"The strength of the New American Commentary is that it genuinely focuses on what the text says. This does not mean that the authors are out of touch with the vast array of secondary literature; rather it means they are committed to putting first things first. Pastors and Bible teachers will be grateful for this resource for years to come."
D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
