I & 2 Corinthians (HNTC) by Richard L. Pratt

51lmc9d9bcl-_sx316_bo1204203200_The Holman New Testament Commentary (HNTC), is Biblical commentary aimed at the working pastor.  It was a commentary I was introduced to in undergrad and have sought to attain the series ever since.

While the HNTC is world renowned for its pastoral pursuit of God’s Word, I was pleasantly surprised at its accessibility to the pastor as well as uneducated laymen. In the book that I have the privilege of viewing is a I & II Corinthians, by Richard L. Pratt.

While reading an assortment of passages in the book of I & 2 Corinthians, I was saddened to see a lack of exegetical commentary about each verse. Yet on the other hand comments about application of the passage are indispensable information that is sorely lacking in almost every modern commentary.

No knowledge of the Biblical Hebrew language is needed when utilizing this commentary.  I highly recommend this commentary to pastors and scholars due to its thorough academic approach combined with its accessibility to academia and the pastorate.

This book was provided to me free of charge from B&H in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
