The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary Series
Last Friday the Cornerstone Biblical Commentary (9 Vols.) hit the Pre-Pub page. This relatively new series from Tyndale, under the editorship of Philip W. Comfort, Tremper Longman III (OT), and Grant Osborne (NT), attempts--like the second edition of the New Living Translation it is based on--to be both exegetically accurate and idiomatically powerful.
The CBC gives careful attention to both the words and theological message of the texts of Scripture and strives to be a helpful tool for teachers, pastors, students, and lay people alike.
The contributors to this series--Allen P. Ross, Tremper Longman III, Darrell L. Bock, Harold W. Hoehner, and many others--represent a wide spectrum of theological positions within evangelicalism, reflecting the rich variety that exists in the church.

lives, knowing that they would die the very next in such a horrible
way? This episode not only exposes this popular yet unbiblical
presentation, but it shows how it actually limits the Gospel to a
certain segment of the world, and how it has the potential to fill the
Church with false converts. Walk through the answer to this tough
question with Kirk and Ray as they film on location in New York City."
As to the question when human life begins, the answer to which is above Mr. Obama's pay grade, oh, let's go on a little tear. You know why they call it birth control? Because it's meant to stop a birth from happening nine months later. We know when life begins. Everyone who ever bought a pack of condoms knows when life begins.
Now how hard was that?
