Cantelon’s Casual Commentary is a major work by Jim Cantelon. Beautiful hardcover edition, 520 pages in length, it is a book you will refer to again and again. It is truly one of a kind in that the author both pastored and lived for 7 years in Israel. As he says in the preface, “I know Jesus’ country. I can see it, smell it, feel it. More than historical or theological my sense of Israel and the Gospels is visceral. This, I think, makes this commentary unique”.
