I really appreciated what this book had to say about each subject. It helps bring both needed balance and correction depending on your own struggles that I know I found beneficial to the point that I’m thankful to have found this book.

These topics include things such as allowing yourself to “play” through a hobby you have (I’ve always struggled with guilt on that and his argument on the important of play majorly helped that!), or caring for your body through eating right, getting proper sleep, etc.

The book also mentions about how people would have learned God’s Word in the time of Jesus and the early church. That part was so helpful and made me think over my own appreciate to studying the Scriptures.

The book does pull from Rob Bell’s Sex God in the fifth chapter, but as far as I can tell, the notes and quotes from it are ones that are biblical and/or correction is brought to those that are not. So I would say, don’t let that turn you off reading this book because it’s not worth skipping it for that reason at all! I was surprised to glean so much from this chapter too despite this.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book!

While the book is good in talking about the "progress of prophecy", I was disappointed that there wasn't more about Jesus as a seer since that is the title.

Such a great commentary, it is not like the usual exegetical commentary instead It focuses on the literary and rhetorical side with a lot of background and cultural information which is perfect for the book of Acts

Wonderful book that gives you insider info on how to become a Biblical Scholar from a seasoned veteran of Biblical Scholarship. Should be required reading for all the christians who are called to be a Scholar
