Craig Keener is a prolific evangelical author, and his commentaries are often thought of classics. yet one in every of his weaknesses is that he occasionally concentration an excessive amount of at the cultural and social environment of the textual content and he forgets to expound what the textual content is absolutely saying.
In a observation that's this brief, i used to be hoping for an exposition that fast will get to the center of what the textual content is asserting, specially simply because Keener is getting ready a far better paintings on those epistles, and so I figured he may possibly whittle that down right into a compelling, digestible format.
But such isn't the case. back, Craig falls into the behavior of giving us circumstantial details and never adequate exposition of the particular textual content. it really is telling while the main excellent exposition within the ebook (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) is available in the shape of a "closer glance" part instead of within the physique of the booklet the place it belongs.
Actually, the two Corinthians part of this e-book has extra compelling exposition than 1 Corinthians, in my view. i love this New Cambridge statement sequence simply because a few of the volumes do an excellent task of disclosing the text's which means with out a lot of verbiage (Witherington on Revelation and Arnold on Genesis, for example).
But this one will depart you hungering for extra.
