    Despite the boring sounding title, this little book reads like a joke book Carson abandons all pretensions at scholarly neutrality and begins ridiculing all the commentaries he doesn t like I read it the first time for information I read it the second and third time for laughs.

    In my review i ll be comparing and contrasting Old Testament Commentary Survey by Longman 5 stars and New Testament Commentary Survey by Carson 4 stars Both books seek to accomplish the same thing Help you decide which Bible Commentaries are well written, thorough, and useful for the reader depending on that person s role Scholar vs Pastor vs Layman so that th

    These are commentaries selections from scholar, DA Carson, on the New Testament books and epistles It is a helpful survey to orient the wealth of literature in this area Read it firstly for guidance Reading it a second time, it s rather funny with his witticisms and somewhat unscholarly preferences certain commentaries over others It d be nice to know indetail wh

    I have used this survey since seminary and find it helpful in laying out the strengths and weaknesses My current version is bundled in my Logos Bible Software, which is helpful because it hyperlinks to commentaries I happen to have there.I don t currently own the companion volume to this, Tremper Longman s Old Testament Commentary Survey In many ways I think that is superior
