This volume represents the beginning of a new commentary series called The Pentecostal Commentary. As such it represents another series available on the market, written from a specific perspective. We have, for example, the much older series, the Evangelisch-katholischer Kommentar zum Neuen Testament (Neukirchener), initiated in the 1970s. In much more recent times we have seen several other kinds of series focusing on specific aspects, such as a series called A Feminist Companion to the New Testament and Early Christian Writings (Sheffield Academic Press), and there is a sociorhetorical commentary on its way. Each of these is supposed to be written from a specific perspective, denominational, hermeneutical or methodological, or both. One may like this development or not; personally I have my reservations, but it appears that there is an interest in the market for it. But I do not think it is good for the genre as such of biblical commentary series. The present series is, as stated by its main editor, to provide reasonably priced commentaries written from a distinctively Pentecostal perspective primarily for pastors, lay persons, and Bible students. Therefore, while the works are based upon the best of scholarship, they are written in popular language (vii). [Full Review]
