REVIEWS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT COMMENTARY

There are three features of the New Testament Commentary which call for special mention:

(1) Dr Hendriksen’s ability to anticipate, propound and answer the kind of questions likely to occur to the thoughtful reader. This he accomplishes, without pandering to idle curiosity and conjecture.

(2) His gift of applying the apostolic teaching and its lessons to present day circumstances in the church and in the world.

(3) His use of simple and happy illustrations, suggestions and contrasts.

These are merits which at once serve to facilitate the reading of the Commentary and greatly enhance its value. – FRASER MACDONALD

One mark of a good commentator is that he does not shirk the difficult passages. Judged by this standard Hendriksen gets high marks. – H.M. CARSON, The English Churchman

The biblical commentaries of William Hendriksen look like becoming classics even during their author’s lifetime … The New Testament Commentary is admirably clear, both in analysis and exegesis. While dealing realistically with interpretative problems when they arise, its primary interest lies in the positive elucidation of the text. Dr Hendriksen succeeds in satisfying the demands both of the biblical student and the preacher in search of homiletical material – a combination all too rare today. – A. SKEVINGTON WOOD, The Life of Faith
