"A very fine work and a useful addition to any study bookshelf." - Church Review
"[A] magnificent, supremely scholarly volume. Indispensible to clergy, lay preachers, students, adult members of congregations and those just interested in the Bible as literature, it provides an up to date, clear, verse by verse explanation of all the books of the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Apocrypha... After carefully examining this brilliant authoritative volume, I unreservedly recommend it to anyone who wishes to understand the Bible more fully." - Ronald S. Mallone, Day by Day
