Comfort NT Text and Translation Commentary

Theophrastus (για σου!) has posted a note about Philip Comfort’s new New Testament Text and Translation Commentary (Tyndale, 2008). Amazon has some ecstatic reviews of the book. Theophrastus gives us a better description and summary of it, though, than either Tyndale or Amazon. There’s also a short review by Bill Warren on the Evangelical Textual Criticism blog.

All of these reviews mention Bruce Metzger’s A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament. I’ve always enjoyed the Metzger commentary, but always wanted it to be more extensive. It sounds as though Comfort has realized this with his exhaustive coverage of the variants and extended coverage of translational renderings. It sounds excellent.

Ευχαριστω σε Θεοφραστος!
