Quoted by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship

In an article on one of my favorite commentators--Frederick Dale Bruner, who I am happy to read is working on a new commentary on the Gospel of John.

From Frederick Dale Bruner: Moving from text to sermon:

You don’t have to write sermons to appreciate Bruner. Michael Dubruiel, an acquisitions editor for the Catholic publisher Our Sunday Visitor, draws on him

on how to live out their faith.
“Bruner gives such a complete overview of what others have said about a passage—as well as commenting on it himself—that you hardly need another reference book on Matthew,” Dubruiel says. He adds that Bruner leaves readers with “a renewed appreciation for Scripture…and what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.”

Thanks to Joan Huyser-Honig for spelling my name right!

One volume of the two-volume series on Matthew by Bruner:
