Pages:xxxvi, 423 p.
Series:Hermeneia
Abstract:Thorough introduction discusses authorship (language, life and teachings of Jesus, thought-world of 1 Peter, historical situation, content, further considerations for determining authorship, 1 Peter as pseudonymous), date, readers, literary shape, theological shape, structure and outline, and text matters. This series emphasizes historical-critical approach. Sections of author's translation (with textual footnotes) as running text is followed by analysis and comment, with its footnotes. Many excursuses are included. Background, structure, details are all available and not too difficult to retrieve. Knowledge of both Hebrew and Greek is assumed, and these are not transliterated. Truly a definitive work.

Pages:207 p.
Series:Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries
Abstract:Three brief commentaries in one volume. NIV base, no running text. Baker on Obadiah: Introduction discusses Edom, Obadiah, the book, the message. Surprisingly good detail in compact comments. Alexander on Jonah: Introduction longer than comments; discusses authorship, date, unity, genre, purpose, "sign of Jonah," text (conservative view on historicity). Fairly good detail in compact comments; leans heavily on Lohfink for extended chiasmus. Waltke on Micah: Introduction discusses the prophet, historical background, date and authorship. Misses few details in compact comments; good on wordplay, historical background. Hebrew used by all three authors, clarified, Hebrew skill not required.

Abstract:Introduction evaluates Micah in terms of an early form of Liberation Theology; discusses history of the prophet, sociopolitical conditions, the message, and unity and structure. No running text, but uses RSV. While some background, understanding of discourse movement, and a few details are discussed, the main thrust is theological in nature, good preaching preparation. However, language level is clear; Hebrew not generally presented.
