The Osborne New Testament Commentaries Come Highly Recommended


Last month, we announced the Osborne New Testament Commentaries written by respected biblical scholar Grant R. Osborne. As a culmination of his life’s ministry, he’s bringing his academic acumen to an accessible, application-focused commentary. Osborne highlights the riches of the New Testament, making each book valuable for pastors and all who consider themselves students of Scripture.

Decades of research, writing, and teaching has earned Osborne immense respect from his peers. Richard E. Averbeck declares him one of the “premier New Testament commentators of our day.” and George H. Guthrie calls him a “first-tier biblical scholar.” With such glowing affirmations, it’s no wonder the endorsements for his new commentary series have been flowing in.

Here’s what a few more scholars have to say about the entire series:

The Osborne New Testament Commentaries draw from the deep well of a lifetime of serious study and teaching. They present significant interpretive insights in a highly accessible, spiritually nurturing format.

This is a tremendous resource that will serve a new generation of Bible readers well for years to come. Highly recommended!

Like many others in the church and academy, I have greatly benefitted from the writings of Grant Osborne over the course of my professional career. Grant has a gift for summarizing the salient points in a passage and making clear what he thinks the text means—as well as making it relevant and applicable to believers at all levels of biblical maturity. I especially commend the usefulness of these verse-by-verse commentaries for pastors and lay leaders.

We’ve given review copies of the first volume in the series—Revelation: Verse by Verse—to a number of scholars. They’re incredibly excited about what they’ve found within:

A well-known writer of New Testament commentaries tackles a well-known New Testament book. The result is an instructive reading of this often-discussed text.

Somehow and seemingly at every turn in this most unusual of New Testament books, Grant Osborne has studiously avoided the cliché as well as the trendy. Instead, he has kept a steady eye on the big ideas of Revelation: the Christ of this book is the Lion, the Lamb and the Lord; the victory over evil most assuredly comes from a cosmic battle waged by the Father of the Lord Jesus against evil and all its dominions; and our means to that victory is a Spirit-generated faithful obedience through suffering.
