Highlights of This Volume
James A. Brooks approaches the study of the Second Gospel from an exegetical and theological perspective. Brooks explores the textual, grammatical, and contextual keys that unlock the meaning of the Gospel for readers at the end of the twentieth century. His interaction with the biblical text and the writings of ancient and contemporary scholars results in a commentary that is both scholarly and practical for pastors and students alike.

The New American Commentary is excellent. The explanations, both of the introductory material and the commentary itself, are clear, full enough to be helpful, but no so lengthy and technical as to curtail widespread use. Any serious Bible student would profit greatly from use of this material.
