New Testament commentaries

by Robert Strivens9 April 2014

William Hendriksen's NT commentaries are, I think, not so popular as they once were, probably because there are now so many good NT commentaries written from a conservative evangelical perspective with up to date scholarly comment. Perhaps Hendriksen is considered to be insufficiently scholarly. The great advantage that his books have over many others, however, is the wealth of references to other, relevant parts of Scripture. Many commentators today, even the most conservative, appear to be shy about referring to parts of the Bible that their author would not have known.
