Excellent Aug 10, 2006
This is the best one vol. commentary on the NT that I am aware of. Many are trite, but this one has meat.
very good and comprehensive with a dispensationalist slant. Jul 23, 2000
the reader may well recognize the authors as professors at dallas theological seminary; walvoord has written multiple books and is considered one of the foremost dispensationalist theologians today (perhaps carrying the torch of chafer). this is a 2 volums set which covers the entire bible, although not in great detail. it is definitely written from an evangelical point of view - that is, the inspiration and inerrancy of the bible is at the foundation of all interpretation (contrast this with the new jerome commentary which is purely historical-critical). nonetheless, this work is the product of sound scholarship and the work of men with expansive knowledge and insight. this is ideal for sunday school classes and personal study; it might be a little thin for use in theology classes.
Supplement with The Complete Guide to the Book of Proverbs. Jan 17, 2000
The Bible Knowledge Commentary was written in 1985 and quotes the New International Version which was completed in 1983. The Commentary has two volumes: Old Testament & New Testament. The comments are interesting and in a popular readable style. The conclusions are generally traditional and conservative: the book of Isaiah has only one author, Song of Songs was written by King Solomon. They also are evangelical-Solomon's many wives are referred to as the "sin of polygamy" (p1010). (Perhaps David, Saul, Jacob, Abraham were all guilty of the same "sin".) If you enjoy this book you may also like THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF PROVERBS by Cody Jones. The comments are interesting and very readable and put things into a historical setting. Many characters from the Bible are pointed out who illustrate King Solomon's witty observations on human nature.
Free Study Guides Available for this Commentary Oct 28, 1997
This commentary was written by faculty members of the Dallas Theological Seminary. Although written from a Dispensational perspective, it fairly presents all major views on the New Testament Text. It is like having the lecture notes for a dozen New Testament courses printed out.
