Boy is this a nice volume!!! Seriously, the sleek look of every page, the nice cover and the sweet hardback binding make this a beautiful looking piece of work. All that's left now is to read and review it (for CTR), which I'm quite excited to do. Written by Gary Burge (Aberdeen), Lynn Cohick (U. of Penn.) and Gene Green (Aberdeen), this book appears as though it is will stand the test of time (content and durability-wise) as a great primer in background studies of the New Testament. As always, when I get into it, hopefully I'll have the chance to share some of my thoughts about it here on Pisteuomen.
