New Commentary Series: Reformation Commentary on Scripture

I recently received two volumes from InterVarsity which relate to the work of the Reformers. The first volume entitled Reading Scripture with the Reformers is written by Timothy George. According to the Publisher's description,  

In Reading Scripture with the Reformers, Timothy George takes readers through the exciting events of the sixteenth century, showing how this dynamic period was instigated by a fresh return to the Scriptures. George immerses us in the world of the Reformation, its continuities with the ancient and medieval church, and its dramatic upheavals and controversies. Most of all, he uncovers the significant way that the Bible shaped the minds and hearts of the reformers.

This book shows how the key figures of the Reformation read and interpreted Scripture, and how their thought was shaped by what they read. We are invited to see what the church today can learn from the fathers of the Reformation, and how these figures offer a model of reading, praying and living out the Scriptures.

The second volume is Galatians, Ephesians, the first available volume in the Reformation Commentary on Scripture series. You can access the table of contents here. Features of this volume and this series include:

·  Offers the insights of Protestant Reformation interpretations of Galatians and Ephesians
·  Presents the diversity and the unity of Protestant Reformation interpretation of Scripture
·  Highlights the exegetical developments that characterized the Protestant Reformation
·  Features a wealth of material previously unavailable in English
·  Introduces the reader to the richness and complexity of the Reformation era
·  Includes in-depth but accessible introductions by world-class Reformation scholars to Reformation interpretations of each book of the Bible
