Title:Israel Among the Nations: A Commentary on the Books of Nahum and Obadiah, and Esther
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel
Pages:x, 140 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Introduction to Nahum discusses Nahum among the prophets, literary structure, Nahum as a cult prophet, theology, and later interpretation. Introduction to Obadiah discusses Obadiah among the prophets, place of composition, Israel and Edom, literary relationships, and theology. Introduction to Esther discusses the historical problem, literary problem, date and place of composition, cultic problem, canonicity, Greek version, and purpose. Scholarly critical methods used, but theological interests of present documents emphasized. No running text, but uses RSV. Coggins covers Nahum and Obadiah quite well for translation purposes, discussing background, literary structure, and individual terms. Re'emi also useful on Esther, though comments are much briefer, less detailed, possibly because of fewer problems. Brief comments inserted on Greek additions. Hebrew referred to but explained by Coggins, not cited by Re'emi.
