Bruner wrote two volumes on Matthew which were fairly well-received. He balances critical and exegetical comments with “history of interpretation” in a way which is quite readable. Assuming the format is similar to the Matthew commentary, Bruner consults early church and Reformation reformation writers in smaller print after his exegetical comments. These are often juxtaposed with modern commentaries so that the past and the present are in constant dialogue.
I look forward to this new commentary on John, although my shelf for John commentaries is already quite well-stocked. Since I have been preaching through John on Sunday Evenings I am always on the prowl for a new book on John. After a visit to The Bookstore (Eerdmans’ excellent shop here in Grand Rapids), I will post a review.
