Commentary Tour kicks of with reflections on ZECNT

Categories New Testament

0310243726 Matthew Miller at Academics is beginning 2011 with a tour of the major commentary sets on the market today, and is kicking off that tour with the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series!

Stating that ZECNT is one of the series he is most excited about, Matthew goes on to describe ZECNT as follows.

Broadly speaking, the ZECNT is specifically designed to encourage an active (and responsible!) engagement with the biblical text. Many commentaries (appropriately so) are designed to convey information about how scholars have viewed texts, work through sticky exegetical questions in detail, and/or address various other concerns. By contrast, the ZECNT invites readers to actively engage in the exegetical process, rather than simply presenting the results of the task. This is its biggest advantage: The ZECNT works with the reader in stimulating an original hermeneutical interplay between the biblical text, the commentator, and the interpreter." 

I’d encourage you to read what is a quite thoughtful reflection on this new series, and to stop back at Academics tomorrow when Matthew reviews Thomas Schreiner’s Galatians commentary.
