    One of the two reasons I'm buying this series is the supporting illustrations (the other is the excellent high definition which is not in any other commentaries). Ministering in a non-English speaking country, we have to translate texts, yet pictures already speak volumes. I hope Dr. Runge will make the illustrations for the sake of clarity for people in other countries.
