Industry Reviews

"The presentation of background information...reveals Witherington's skills as a teacher and writer. There is no verbosity or redundance. Every sentence adds information interestingly presented and germane to what follows. The strengths of the book are many. The writing style is clear, the outlining is thorough and helpful, and the comments are concise. The introductory chapter is outstanding for its presentation of a wealth of background material in relatively brief compass... The content...is well presented and is valuable for the study of NT epistolary writings. It is heartily recommended." Homer A. Kent, Grace College and Theological Seminary, reviewing for Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society--Sanford Lakoff "Journal Of The Evangelical Theological Society "
