Praise for Previous Editions

"An incredibly informative and wonderfully fun book. There is an extraordinary amount of information packed into its pages, and the fun comes from considering one's own preferences and then alternately agreeing or disagreeing with Carson's comments. . . . This book will be of continued benefit to theological students."
--Paul Foster, Journal for the Study of the New Testament

"The multiplication of commentaries and monographs on individual books of the New Testament, and the difficulty of discerning the wheat from the chaff, makes this book a valuable resource indeed--a must read for the student or pastor who is building his or her library. . . . Carson certainly provides all one needs to arrive at a 'short list' of necessary resources and to be acquainted with the potential pitfalls and strengths of most books that a student might encounter in the course of researching an exegetical paper. This book is highly recommended."
--David A. deSilva, Ashland Theological Journal

"Carson's work is most valuable and his perceptive remarks will serve pastors and students well."
--David S. Dockery, Review and Expositor

"A gold mine of informed judgment. . . . If you have any intention of building up a personal library on the New Testament that is full of tools that are effective in aiding you to understand the meaning of the biblical text, read Carson before you spend your money. You may not always agree with his comments, but you will be helped to make more informed choices."

"[An] eminently useful survey. . . . The author has developed a running narrative approach, which is refreshing and much more readable than the traditional bibliographic method. . . . This work is highly recommended."
--Dennis M. Swanson, Master's Seminary Journal
