Review of Biblical Literature Oct 3, 2008

Here are the new reviews that have been added to the Review of Biblical Literature. Of particular interest is the Global Bible Commentary edited by Daniel Patte. The other is the commentary on Matthew by Ben Withierington. With the large number of books he published, I wonder how he would find the time to do so. Any wise words for the budding NT scholar?
