"Students and pastors can read the work with profit, even if they may differ on some details of interpretation."

'Many careful explanations and insights make this a worthy work for pastors and students... The inclusion of valuable recent historical and archaeological discoveries, and excellent indexes make this a useful and helpful study tool.'
"Some works on the life of Christ... emphasize the doctrinal aspects of the life of our Lord, others the historical, and still others the geographical. ...a balanced blend of all of these... If a person is choosing one book on this subject for his library, this should be the one."
"Fills the need for an up-to-date, well-arranged, and interestingly written life of Christ of moderate length... should be a standard textbook for many years to come... masterfully organized and reverently written."
