Praise for the Print Edition

If you are preparing a new sermon series and looking for advice on commentaries, you must consult . . . the New Testament Commentary Survey. . . . [It] will help to save you lots of money in the long run.

Semper Reformanda

An incredibly informative and wonderfully fun book. There is an extraordinary amount of information packed into its pages, and the fun comes from considering one’s own preferences and then alternately agreeing or disagreeing with Carson’s comments. . . . This book will be of continued benefit to theological students.

Paul Foster, Journal for the Study of the New Testament

Carson’s work is most valuable and his perceptive remarks will serve pastors and students well.
