Going beyond questions of authorship, date, sources, and historicity, respected linguist and teacher Gundry offers a one-volume exposition of the New Testament that focuses on what is most useful for preaching, teaching, and individual study--what the biblical text really means. Providing interpretive observations in a "breezy" style that's easy to read and adaptable for oral use in pulpit or classroom presentations, Gundry directs his book to an evangelical audience. --from publisher description

Robert Gundry is a beloved guide to the New Testament for many. His well-known textbook, A Survey of the New Testament, has been used by generations of students as a trustworthy introduction to the background and content of each book of the New Testament. Now he further extends his helping hand to everyone who wants to preach, teach, and study the Bible. This one-volume commentary on the New Testament provides a fresh, literal translation of the entire New Testament and a pastorally caring, reliable exposition of what is in our New Testament and what it means for us.

This is a great resource in a great format for a great purpose from a great scholar. Bob Gundry has been a treasure for people who love the Bible for many years, and this is one of his richest gifts to us yet. John Ortberg, Author, Senior Pastor, Menio Park Presbyterian Church, California

Like having a wonderful tour guide to a foreign country's Gundry's study of the New Testament introduces and guides one through the many joys and causes for reflection that are a part of a trip through the New Testament. The guidance provided is judicious in its choices of what to comment on and skilled in its presentation of the key ideas. It will surely serve well those who use it. Darrell Bock, Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

There is no better single-volume commentary on the New Testament than the one Bob Gundry has written. It offers succinct, fast-paced commentary, yet without neglecting the important points of interpretation. Busy pastors, students, laity, and even veteran scholars will find much in this commentary to appreciate. It belongs in every library and study. Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia, Canada

This is not just another ho-hum commentary, the product of someone reading and repackaging previous commentaries. This is rather the fruit of a lifetime of close, intense attention to the text of the Greek New Testament; the upshot is that one happily finds on every page of this exegetical treasure fresh readings and independent judgments. Dale C. Allison Jr, Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Gundry's magnum opus culminates the life's work of one of our generation's preeminent New Testament scholars. The weight of this commentary is matched by the substance of Gundry's interpretation within its pages, reflecting his lifetime of scholarship. This one-volume commentary on the New Testament is a rare accomplishment that must find a place on the bookshelf of every serious preacher, teacher, and student of Scripture. Karen H. Jobes, Gerald F. Hawthorne Professor of New Testament Greek and Exegesis, Wheaton College and Graduate School
