Summary of Keener’s Miracles Book and More in Latest Catalyst Issue April 16, 2013

The online Methodist journal Catalyst contains a couple of noteworthy articles. First, in only a few pages, Craig Keener summarizes his Miracles book-set. Andy Crouch talks about the future of theological education. Also, J. Christian Stratton offers brief comments on commentary suggestions for Philippians, Colossians, Philemon, 1-2 Thessalonians, and the Pastoral Epistles.  (BTW – Catalyst now has a Facebook page).

Real quick, here are Stratton’s suggestions:

Philippians: Silva (BECNT), O’Brien (NIGTC), Fee (NICNT), Bockmuehl (BNTC), Hansen (PNTC), Still (S&H).

Colossians: Dunn (NIGTC), Moo (PNTC), Pao (ZECNT), Thompson (THNTC).

Philemon: Fitzmyer (AB); also mentions Moo and Thompson

1-2 Thessalonians: Green (PNTC), Witherington, Fee (NICNT), Shogren (ZECNT).

Pastorals: Marshall (ICC), Mounce (WBC), Towner (NICNT), Wall/Steele (THNTC)

Stratton tips his hat to the Ancient Christian Commentary.
