Great resource.
Dan Glover
This is not the kind of book you sit down and read cover-to-cover but I have been using it over the years when I study Christ and the gospels. It is at a fairly scholarly level but it is accessible to college level students and intelligent lay people. While most of the contributers are basically evangelical, much source criticism and higher criticism assumptions have been adopted in these articles but for the discerning reader, this is still a very valuable tool.

Definitely a great resource for NT studies, published in 1992 with recent research, voices of many scholars with references to source works, straight-forward language, readable, more than 900 pages, many articles of interest to me. I can see referring to it for many years.

Moving to "read," even though I truly haven't read it all. Again, great resource!

I didn't read all of this book. However i read a ton of it for New Testament I. Excellent book that I will use many times in my ministry. Good for deep questions about scripture and historical backgrounds. Good discussions.

Great reference book from an unashamedly evangelical, but thorough-going academic perspective... But anyone who says they have read it all is telling porkies... With the possible exceptions of the authors!

This is a great reference work for the gospels. Read many of the articles in this work and found them to be informative and helpful. A comprehensive work.
