Thrity Thursday – Great Commentary

by on April 24, 2008

Ok, we’re seminarians and we love books. I don’t often recommend books here as I’m sure you already have a backlog of books on your “to be purchased” list. However, I came across this amazing resource that is at an amazing price and thought it was worth sharing.

Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament is edited by D.A. Carson and G.K. Beale and is a comprehensive commentary of EVERY old testament reference in the new testament. For every reference there is a detailed explanation of the context from which the verse appears in the Old Testament, as well as its use and implication on the New Testament text. It is a truly amazing resource.

Now, the really sweet deal is that I found it at for $31 (List is $54)… but wait, it gets better… if you use google check-out and it is the first time you’ve ever used it then you save another $10! That means you can get this amazing resource for $21. Worth every penny and then some if you ask me.

So, if you’re interested, check it out:

Sweet! I just got it for $21.18, with free shipping. Can’t beat it. I’ve wanted this since the week it was published but couldn’t afford the price tag. Thanks for the tip!

Just perusing your site on a Sat morning. Very well done. I found this post interesting; I’ve been studying out every old testament reference in the gospels every day for over two months. Just something I felt to do- and incredible to do it. Glad I came across your suggestion!
