in Tyndale New Testament Commentaries
Publisher InterVarsity Press
The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries (TNTC) have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelicals scholars, including F. F. Bruce, Leon Morris, N. T. Wright, and Donald Guthrie, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.Formerly distributed by Eerdmans Publishing Co., InterVarsity Press is pleased to begin offering this series as a compliment to the popular Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries (TOTC). Like the TOTCs, the TNTC volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
A fairly concise volume. The intro is a standard brief Tyndale intro. The commentary is generally workmanlike which matches the book. This changes with the love chapter. As this beautiful chapter unfolds, Leon Morris shows his ability to take a beautiful passage and add both beauty and depth. This is the high point of the volume.
The Tyndale series is targeted at a general audience, so this commentary is written at a basic level and is relatively short. [Full Review]
A little out of date, and quite superficial.
The late Leon Morris has written a number of great commentaries. His commentary on 1 Corinthians in the Tyndale series is one of those. Space limitations in the series preclude comprehensiveness, but Morris can usually say more in a few pages than most commentators can say in an entire book. This introductory level commentary will benefit any who take the time to read it. [Full Review]
