Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent study aid  Feb 15, 2010
Beale and Carson's commentary is a wonderful guide to help place the multitude of Old Testament quotes in the New Testament in their proper context and make it possible to correctly exegete a text. I purchased this as we began a study of Hebrews in our small groups and it has helped me immensely to understand the many difficult quotes in this letter. Beale and Carson provide more information than you can possibly use in a sermon or study, looking at not only the Old Testament context, but also its relation to systematic theology, variant texts and even other Jewish references to the select quotations. For anyone who wants to seriously study the New Testament and understand its relation to the Old Testament, there is probably no better resource available.
Helpful, But of Limited Use  Jan 10, 2010
Although I am pleased with this product in terms of price and what it offers, I must say that I'm also a bit disappointed. Considering the vast amount of quality scholarship involved, I was surprised that numerous references to the texts of the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament were entirely missing. For instance, all four gospels refer to an event which sounds conspicuously like Ezekiel's inaugural vision. Just as Ezekiel was by a river, canal, or waterway on the edge of the desert when the heavens opened and the Spirit descended upon him (Ezek 1:1-28), so Yeshua was by the Jordan on the edge of the desert when the heavens opened and the Spirit descended over him (Matt 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:21-22; John 1:32). The motion of the descent of the apparition in the gospels was like a dove, which recalls the divine presence with its outspread wings, riding the wind where it took it in Ezekiel's vision. The apparition of the spirit of YHWH eventually came to rest over Yeshua just like it did upon Ezekiel, and then a voice was heard just like a voice was heard in Ezek 1:28. Both voices go on to refer to their respective prophets as "son." Etc. It seems pretty clear that the gospels are drawing partially on Ezekiel's account in order to portray Yeshua as the new watchman to the house of Israel and yet I was unable to find any references to this anywhere in the volume. Many, many more could be added to this one example. As a Hebrew Bible/Old Testament person, perhaps I was expecting more of New Testament scholars than is really fair. Perhaps a volume like this would have been better if its contributers were HB/OT scholars. Or perhaps it is really just an issue of space and capacity (this honker is thick). Additionally, it felt like there were times when the volume went to great lengths to peer into very remote, ambiguous, and even dubious references. And while the evangelical slant of the volume is at times either annoying or unhelpful, the quantity of otherwise good scholarship and insight makes this easy to forgive. As a HB/OT person, this volume has allowed me to gain greater respect and appreciation for the NT texts and has opened up further avenues of connection or exploration between my corner of the world and Greek, gentile Christianity's.
Must have but...  Sep 16, 2009
As you may read in other reviews this is a "must have" book. But...I wish it had better binding. Rather that having stitched/folded pages, it has the cheaper "injected glue" binding. Thus when you open this massive 1230 ppg book both sides of the book "heave" up causing the text near the inner margin to "fall off" into the inner margin. This makes reading and marking of the text very difficult. My Langenscheidt's New College Merriam-Webster English Dictionary is similar size book but with stitched binding...and it lays "flat" when opened. A much better situation and more pleasing to use. Sad to see such an important work with this stiff, cheap binding.

My other negative. Both Greek and Hebrew is transliterated. We want the Greek text at least. Also a better use of bold text should have been used to make the OT/NT citations stand out to catch the eye.

But, buy the book.
the best commentary I ever read  Aug 10, 2009
Das Beste was ich bis jetzt in Händen hielt. Diesen Kommentar kann man hervorragend zur Predigtvorbereitung nutzen, da er nicht nur die Verweise zu den Bibelstellen im AT angibt, sondern auch sehr ausführliche Informationen bietet. Ausserdem ist er in einem gut lesbaren englisch verfasst.
Sehr zu empfehlen für jeden Bibelinteressierten, Studenten, Pastor, ...
Joe Porter  Jun 3, 2009
"This review is based on reading the commentary on two verses in 1 Peter (state the verses) and is part of a class assignment at Moody Graduate School. The professor has not edited these comments.

This commentary provides excellent background regarding verses in the New Testament that quote the Old Testament. In parts of the New Testament that seem mundane, they are illuminated to deeper meaning when some are revealed to be an allusion to the Old Testament. In parts that are directly quoted, the commentary indicates why the New Testament writer uses that quote and provides the context of the passage of the Old Testament from which it is derived. The commentary would be better served if it introduced the New Testament context after the Old Testament context, context in Judaism, and textual criticism considerations. This way there could be a more chronological approach that would make the information and different contexts easier to process.
