Engage in both concentrated biblical exegesis and meaningful theological reflection with the Two Horizons Commentary series. Without slighting the significance of philological, historical, and social-scientific questions, scholars in this series focus their primary interests on theological readings of texts, past and present. Experts such as Joel B. Green, Peter Enns, and J. Gordon McConville examine 21 books of the Bible — 12 Old Testament and 9 New Testament. They discuss each book in relation to the whole of Scripture, asking what it specifically contributes to biblical theology. The result is a paragraph-by-paragraph engagement with the text that is deliberately theological in focus.
