ACC or ONT?
« on: May 22, 2005, 04:40:33 AM »
Which provides a better variety, insight, depth and translation of patristic commentaries for the New Testament books?

I realise that the ACC have a separate book for each New Testament book, but I have no idea regarding the depth of insight provided, the reliability of the translations, or the variety of interpretations given - especially considering that the authors are Protestant I would hate it if the focus of the patristic commentaries were biased towards those which prima facie support a Protestant agenda.

If anyone has been acquianted with both these sources, I would appreciate your recommendations and advice.

Peace.

Isn't there anyone who can give me any sort of a comparative analysis? I really want to buy one or the other ASAP; any help as requested above would be much appreciated...


Peace.

  I don't know anything about them, so I Googled them.  The ACC, from what I could tell, is a Menonite Bible.  And I couldn't find anything about an ONT.

ACCS - Ancient Christian Commentary Series
ONT - Orthodox New Testament

They both provide patristic commentaries for the Gospels, but I’d like to purchase the one which best satisfies my above criterion.
