I received both books about a month ago and have been very impressed. George’s volume is a helpful introduction and will be a great companion to the series. The actual commentary includes a concise overview of some significant interpreters of Galatians and Ephesians, maps, timelines, biographical sketches, a decent bibliography and, thankfully, a solid index. Similar to the Ancient Christian Commentary Series, this looks to be a significant resource for students, pastors, and scholars.
The Reformation Scripture principle set the entirety of Christian life and thought under the governance of the divine Word, and pressed the church to renew its exegetical labors. This series promises to place before the contemporary church the fruit of those labors, and so to exemplify life under the Word.
