Reviews of the New Beacon Bible Commentaries

romans commentary coverOn the Philippians volume:

“Dean Flemming has written what should become “the commentary of first reference” on the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians. He is thoroughly conversant with all of the serious scholarship on Philippians to date. But he makes scholarship easily accessible to average readers and points them to further reading on subjects he must treat in summary fashion. I highly recommend this commentary.”
– George Lyons, professor of New Testament, Northwest Nazarene University
