What do you think of this book by Ben Witherington III?

Very helpful post. Could you do more of these in the future? For instance I am planting a church, and in about three months time I will begin exposition of Luke-Acts. Could you give a similar breakdown for these books?

Glenn: Haven't read BWIII's Revelation commentary in total, but I did like what he had to say about chapter 20 and the millennium.

Mosbourne20: In the future I'll post a few more on these, maybe Luke-Acts in the near future.

I have both Beale's and Keener's commentaries. I highly recommend them both.
