Wuest used interpretative material based on the Greek text, some original with the author and some selected from other Greek authorities such as Marvin Vincent and Henry Barclay Swete.
The order of the Greek words has been preserved as much as possible so the reader may see where the Greek places the emphasis. Polished diction has been sacrificed in the in interest of clarity and a closer adherence to the style and force of the Greek text.

Bro JonathanFloridaAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Just bought my third set.January 9, 2014Bro JonathanFloridaAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5You'll enjoy this collection more if you spend an hour or so getting acquainted with the main divisions in the content, which is appallingly unintuitive. Some sticky labels with permanent marker for making tabs will increase your use and enjoyment of these valuable volumes. As a bonus, you get a hard-bound Wuest's N.T. translation (more of a transliteration from the Greek) that's not, to my knowledge, available separately. Advice: just be discerning of where Wuest adds doctrinal interpretation to what God is actually saying. Let the Holy Spirit do that job for you and let Wuest provide insights into what the Greek mind expresses so precisely that English, by comparison, is just plain slovenly and imprecise about saying. In the N.T. volume, I recommend disregarding what Wuest places in [square brackets] i.e., Wuest's dispensational creed. Aside from his creed, I find his scholarly dissection of the Greek extremely enlightening.
KarenAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5June 26, 2013KarenAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 2Meets Expectations: 1its not what i expected; its not the quality i expected; i thought all 4 volumes was the new testament, but only one volume is. the others volumes are commentaries. plus the way its organized is VERY difficult to find what you are looking for (uses roman numerals and no verse headings). in the pic it looks blue and nicely bound, but it came as black and cheaply bound, with cheaply printed pages. i could have bought just the bible part for less than ten bucks. oh well, live and learn. the customer service at Christianbooks was awesome, though. They were super helpful and friendly. Loved em!
