He notes the following:
Osborne’s commentary is part of Zondervan’s new Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, and it really strives to be a good resource for pastors.
As Osborne says in the introduction,
If I were to dedicate the rest of my life to one single, thing, it would be bringing the Bible back into the center of the church’s life.
And, in a very helpful review, Nijay Gupta thinks that the series has accomplished exactly this.
I am happy to report that Zondervan has really figured out what (evangelical) pastors and ministry leaders need, and they have planned a series that can deliver precisely in the traditional areas of “exegesis.”
Matthew Montonini also has an excellent review if you’re looking for more information on the commentary or the Zondervan series as a whole.
