Pastors and students of the Bible who seek deep and detailed engagement with the text of the New Testament have long relied on R. C. H. Lenski's classic text - now available again.
Lenski's massive yet readable commentary has been deeply influential in pastoral circles that prize serious work with the Greek text, a strong theological exegesis (influenced by Lenski's Lutheran background and conservative theological convictions), and understanding how each text relates to life in Christ. Each passage is introduced by Lenski's original translation, followed by his exhaustive discussion of linguistic, historical, exegetical, and thematic points.
Those familiar with Lenski praise it for its ability to contextually orient the reader in the context and flow of any particular passage. Introductions to each book that give helpful information on the author, date, time of writing, reason for writing and prominent themes.
