- Supposedly, according to Faithlife, "We do not delete comments based on negative feedback, but rather inappropriate and irrelevant content. ... Faithlife reserves the right to accept or reject any review." Translation: they can cancel anyone that disagrees with whatever. Well, like so much of cancel culture, somebody saw fit to cancell my previous post. I believe my previous post was appropriate and relevant and offered constructive criticism. Now that it's been deleted, I will have to try and remember the gist of what I said and restate it. Here are some key points that may be helpful. Here goes. 1. The citations for a number of reference works, especially the Hebrew resources, were fairly useful. 2. A student going to seminary could gain some benefit from being able to recognize standard reference works. 3. Unfortunately, this work is becoming a bit dated and perhaps a revision would be in order. 4.The annotative purpose of the book is a good enough idea. Unfortunately, it is written rather strongly from a minority perspective which limits its usefulness for a broader audience. (Of course, it's great if you also lean to that particular view.) Considering this as a kind of reference work a minority perspective makes it less helpful to a much larger potential customer base. (This doesn't mean the author couldn't express his personal choices in the text, but a more hands off approach would be more suited to such a reference work.) 5. It was generally too brief and mechanical to be very helpful. (Compare this to Bryne's annotated bibliographies and you will see the point.) 6. It came across as mostly a somewhat regurgitated but updated version of C.A. Carson's book of the same purpose. Numerous quotes from Carson on so many listed commentaries will support that fact. 7. One could probably get at least as useful a work of this nature online for free. All in all, if you get this for a good sale price, it is functional and may be used like the index card it is basically meant to be. It is concise, to a fault, but it is meant to be just an annotative resource. Hope this helps someone.
