Tim Gombis on Rom-Eph Commentaries (Gupta)

My buddy Tim Gombis gives his take on building your pastoral library for Pauline commentaries – Romans-Ephesians. This is a good list. I echo nearly all his recommendations – I would just add Stephen Fowl’s Ephesians commentary (NTL), and also he does not mention Ben Witherington and I particularly appreciate Witherington’s works on 1-2 Corinthians and Ephesians. In Witherington’s body of work, I believe his commentaries are my favorite contributions he has made to scholarship.

Also, I concur with Gombis that David Garland has written a spectacular 1 Corinthians commentary for BECNT (Baker), but I would also add that Garland’s 2 Corinthians commentary (NAC) is excellent (Gombis does not mention the 2 Cor volume).

Thanks, Tim!

John Goldingay’s Blog (Gupta)

Today I discovered that Dr. John Goldingay has a blog! It is not “brand new,” but it is new enough to bring it to your attention. He has lots of little essays available there, and a handful of posts by himself or his wife Kathleen. I was enjoying reading today about their thoughts on prayer and praying from the Book of Common Prayer together.
