"Green reveals himself to be well-informed, clearly in control of a vast amount of detail. . . . This is a fine example of a historical-grammatical commentary, informed by significant knowledge of classical literature and recognition of rhetorical structures."--Peter H. Davids,Review of Biblical Literature
