(BibleReviewer, 7 December 2013)
"WithThe Blackwell Companion to the New Testament highlyrecommended for its biblical scholarship, The Blackwell Companionto the Bible and Culture seems more reader-friendly but just asthorough as indicated by its ample citations and impressivebibliographies at the end of each chapter. Both books also makeexcellent reference guides without overlapping. i.e., Instead ofpresenting approaches that influence our understanding of abiblical text,The Blackwell Companion to the Bible and Cultureshows the influence of the Bible on literature, art, music,psychology, and even history and politics."
(Journal for theStudy of The New Testament, 1 August 2012)
"Most of the chapters offers substantial treatments of thetopics under consideration, including excellent overviews ofcurrent trends in NT scholarship."
(The New Testament, 1 October 2010)
"This comprehensive introduction to the literature of the NTcontains thirty-eight articles by thirty-four scholars, women andmen representing the best of Protestant, Catholic, and Jewishscholarship."
(Philosophy and religion, October 2010)
Clear sign of scholarly writing set on engaging clearly with thetext of the New Testament. . . This is an objective workthroughout, not set on conversion and more set on information andillumination. A work well worth waiting for and, inevitably andpraiseworthily, likely to stimulate further inquiry and debate."
(Church Times, 22 October2010)
"It is admirably structured, apparently comprehensive andupto-date, with one important qualification, in that it covers theacademic approach to the New Testament through thehistorical-critical Method . . . this work is an impressivecompilation, an excellent indicator of the range and depth ofcurrent New Testament scholarship."
--C Clifton Black, Princeton TheologicalSeminary
"With contributions from an international team ofdistinguished scholars, this Companion offers a comprehensiveorientation to the New Testament's books, their cultural andreligious contexts, and the most important critical approaches totheir interpretation. The volume's greatest strength lies inits masterly compression of the field's rich history ofscholarship. Written with clarity and insight rare in a work ofmultiple authorship, this is a commendable handbook for advancedstudents, their teachers, and a broad audience of educatedreaders."
--Loveday Alexander, University of Sheffield
