  1. No! (= my answer! 🙂 )

  2. I couldn’t hear the mp3 file, but my answer is no, just as we shouldn’t use only conservative/evangelical commentaries. But, we do need to recognize that while much older commentaries still have their contributions to make, it’s not enough to only use older commentaries.

  3. In short no.
    We should use what captures the heart of the Word, of course on some of the older commentaries we will have to consider how contextual it is to our current culture.
    But there are tons of amazing & insightful commentaries out there.
