If I had to pick my top 5 from the NIGTC set it would be: 1. Beale on Revelation, 2. Ellingworth on Hebrews, 3. Thiselton on 1 Corinthians, 4. Nolland on Matthew and 5. O'Brien on Philippians (I don't care about the P. dilemma it's still very useful).

 

This list is pretty much why I bought it as well. And these individual volumes more than cover the cost of the entire set. Not to mention the value of those volumes not listed here.

It's caution, by the way, not paranoia!

 

As I am fond of saying, "A little paranoia saves you a world of hurt."

I prefer to call it "caution".  Paranoia sounds a bit pathological.  :blink:   :) But on the whole, I agree – that's why I have back-ups for my back-ups.

Julia,

 

Have used nearly al of the volumes, except Romans while I was either studying or preaching, they are all good.  Beale ie excellent, as are others in the set.

Thank you, Phil.  I managed to find a hardbound copy of NIGTC Philippians in "very good condition" on Amazon from a reputable seller.  I'd rather have it in Accordance, but that is no longer possible.  I've been impressed with O'Brien's other works, and choose to give the man the benefit of the doubt – that the missing citations were an oversight and not deliberate plagiarism.

The quality of his other works it amazes me the unattributed citations were not corrected rather than removing them. Cause like you I feel it was an oversight and not intentional. I know I had one teacher in Junior high who insisted on attributing a favourite edison quote to Albert Einstein (who may have used the quote as well), but even when confronted with an Encyclopaedia article showing that at least Edison said it first he refused to stop attributing it to Einstein (I use him as an example of one not willing to acknowledge error). O' Brien acknowledged his mistake and apologized for it. I have mentioned ideas (not academic circles of course) and in the back of my mind thinking is this my thought or another's. Thankfully no one in a casual discussion is going to say that is X's words but when something is rattling around your head we can forget it's source or as we formulate our thoughts can unintentionally draw on what we have read or even simply heard. I am not saying the works did not need repairing just it was a shame to throw out good works that just needed some repair.

Well said Dan! It should've been edited and updated for corrections instead of throwing away hours of work to the trash. Oh well! It is what it is.
