Best Books of 2015

Best Reads From 2015

As with last year, I’m won’t restrict myself to books released in 2015 since there are plenty of important books from this year that I haven’t (yet) read. So this is no attempt for inspired list of “best” books of 2015, and the age of a book alone shouldn’t determine it’s quality anyway.

Hebrews Biblical Theology Christian ProclamationAs I sit down to write this review, I can hear the words ringing in my head,another commentary series?” Or maybe, “another review defending the existence of another commentary series?”.

D.A. Carson Lectures on Hebrews

D.A. CarsonD.A. Carson is an excellent New Testament scholar and a gift to the church. The work he has done for the church is significant, including editing the Pillar series of commentaries and the New Studies in Biblical Theology series, as well as a vast number of great books. If only he would release more commentaries himself, though he is slated to provide titles for Galatians, Revelation, Hebrews and the Johannine Epistles. Carson also co-edited Commentary on the New Testament use of the Old Testament with Greg Beale. All this to say, we should be interested when a lecture series by Carson on the book of Hebrews is released online! And that’s exactly what happened.
