New Testament Message. Vol .3 Matthew by John P Meier (0.50); Vol 4 Mark by Wilfrid Harrington OP (£6.95); Vol 5 Luke by Eugene La Verdiere SSS (£6.95); Vol6 John by James McPolin SJ (£6.95) (Veritas Publications).
New Testament Message is a series of Biblical commentaries which should prove of great help not only to preachers and those concerned with the Bible professionally. The innumerable Christians who turn to the Bible
to lead them into prayer as well as into Christian action will find in these volumes what they need — a distillation of recent biblical scholarship without being intellectually indigestable.
The authors of these commentaries make their work readable without introducing too much detail. All are based on the assumption that the final version of each gospel was composed bearing in mind the individual needs of the community in which each evangelist found himself.
