    Hi, I find Brown's books useful. He's moderately critical. With the Gospel of John commentaries (not included in this set, you can find them in the AYB commentary series) he has some very complicated source theories regarding the original (hypothetical?) Johannine Community (perhaps also with the "Introduction to the Gospel of John" in this set? Haven

    Ordered it as well. Thanks a lot, Logos! Others worth getting - besides the Carson and McKnight books DAL referred to above - are Hans Dieter Betz's Hermeneia Commentary and John Stott's exposition ("The Message") . Historically of course St. Augustine's Commentary, Luther's exposition in LW 21, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship. It

All of these Evans mentions. Most of Boice’s commentaries get a white star from Evans (meaning a Worthwhile Purchase

    Hauerwas is a known theologian, not just in Christian circles but in the academia and the society at large. He’s not so much an exegete as a theologian, an ethicist etc. He was named ”America’s Best Theologian” by Time Magazine in 2001. John F. Evans’ Guide to Biblical Commentaries (10th edition) regards Hauerwas’
