Not as good as I had hoped By Matt, Submitted on 2015-02-25. by Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Thomas A. There are some good insights, but I found the book lacking in deep insights from the new testament that I was looking for. It is lacking a comprehensive index to help find passages of scripture as well that has made using it as a study guide quite cumbersome.

Our church is studying the New Testament in Sunday School this year and wanted to read a commentary. I like this one a lot. To get the most out of it, a copy of the New Testament should be on hand since the passages are not included in the text as they are in a much older commentary by McConkey. That's okay since the old commentary required 3 volumes and I imagine most people studying the New Testament have one. This commentary includes cultural information. I'm not through with it yet, but I doubt my opinion is going to change.

Maybe the most clear answers to your questions about the New Testament. l recommend this book along with, "Jesus the Christ" by Talmadge.

A very helpful resource for studying the scriptures.

This is one of the first LDS books that takes advantage of current New Testament scholarship rather than relying on LDS works that reflected the views of Victorian Era biblical commentators. Even so it is accessible to a general audience. I often wished that the book was longer.

outstanding scholar who writes in style that is accessible to the lay reader. Well formatted and succinct. I found this book a great help in my study of the scriptures.

What I think this book does is give a helpful and needed look into the context of New Testament scriptures that often get overlooked. Placing the scriptures in context in this way allows for a more complete reading but without neglecting the role belief has in understanding. The authors do a great job of pointing out patterns and story line that can be missed when focusing too much on often quoted verses. The book's content is incredibly well written in my opinion.

The one thing that I really wish they would have done better is to make it easier to find the stories and scriptures in the gospels. The gospels section is split up chronologically by story, which is great, other than the fact that there is no way to look up particular stories by page number. There is a chart in the back with the stories and scriptures but there are no page numbers included. This was a big oversight by the publishers. I still give it five stars because I love the content so much!
