Every now and then I find myself with a short stack of books ready for review. Usually I’ve got some kind of plan for the sequence, but today, I decided to deviate from the plan. Part of this is because I didn’t feel like putting together the review I had slated for today, and part of it is because I’m going to be out next week and am decided whether or not to pre-author any posts to fill the week.
I do have a review that I have to publish this week as part of a blog tour (and it includes a giveaway!), but here’s the books that I’ve read enough to have formulated review thoughts in my head (but just haven’t typed them out yet):
- Four Views on The Apostle Paul
- Understanding Biblical Theology
- Gospel Treason: Betraying the Gospel With Hidden Idols
- Handbook on The New Testament’s Use of the Old Testament (this is also a giveaway)
- Paul’s Letter to the Romans (PNTC)
- Galatians (ZECNT)
- Ephesians (ZECNT)
- Matthew (ZECNT)
- Luke (ZECNT)
With the commentaries, I’m thinking I’ll combine the reviews of Ephesians and Galatians as well as the reviews of Matthew and Luke. Part of this is because much of what I said about the layout and style of James (ZECNT) applies to these volumes as well. The other part is because in these cases I’m reviewing these volumes as commentaries on those particular books and plotting where they lay on the map respective to other commentaries. Given the size of the Matthew and Luke volumes, a thorough review is outside my ability to produce in any kind of reasonable amount of time. I can though tell you, after giving them a thorough browsing (which is what you do with reference works), whether or not I think you should add them to your library.
