  • As usual, Dr. Blomberg gives very concise, but adequate, summaries and outlines. I also particularly like his chapter on the geographical, social, and political contexts of the New Testament books. It gives us very comprehensive background, succinctly compressed into one talk. A course to be recommended highly.
