It is very rare for me to say in an endorsement that a work is “invaluable” and a “must purchase,” but this is one of them. As one who has been writing commentaries for over thirty years, my only question is why someone didn’t think of this a long time ago. Once I have this in hand, I will never write anything without consulting this “geographical commentary.” I find it equally essential on general background issues as on geography itself. I am very impressed and cannot wait to start using it. Thank you, Barry, and thank you, Lexham Press!
You should check out the contents of LGCG here.
Also, Lexham has published an accompanying resource covering the rest of the NT, the Lexham Geographic Commentary on Acts through Revelation.
Both resources look to be must-have’s for those of us in biblical studies, whether as scholars, pastors, students, or anybody seeking to enrich their study of Scripture.
Congrats, Lexham Press!
