Abstract:Research into literature of the era has added about 25
Keywords: to the size of the former edition, plus other revisions. Introduction discusses author, cultural bridgebuilder, supreme excellence as a quality of Jesus, God and Jesus, Jesus as Savior, problems for Luke's report (messianic identity and last things, demonic power, signs of the end, a nation's rejection, problems of antisemitism), sources, date, and strategy of this commentary. No running text, but based on RSV. Discusses larger segments, then breaks them down to verse level. Really good in relating each section to the political/historical milieu. Details translators need are often overlooked, but the historical significance discussed makes up for that. Greek used but not required for full understanding. Second edition, revised and expanded

Title:1990
Collection Title:The First Epistle of Peter
Publisher:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pages:Eerdmans
Series:xxii, 266 p.
Abstract:New International Commentary on the New Testament
Keywords:Translators should be sure to read the introduction, which discusses in a balanced way details and theories concerning authorship, recipients, and date and place of writing; also literary genre, theology (detailing important emphases), sources; also an excursus on suffering. Author's formal translation is running text. Rather good coverage of details, background, structure of discourse. Information not difficult to retrieve. Greek seems limited to footnotes.

Title:1992
Collection Title:Hosea
Publisher:London; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pages:Marshall Pickering; Eerdmans
Series:315 p.
Abstract:New Century Bible Commentary
Keywords:Introduction discusses Hosea and his circumstances, the historical context and development of Hosea's message, Hosea's relation to the religious traditions of the northern kingdom, and the character, compilation, redaction, and text of the book. Makes good use of the best in modern critical studies, leaning heavily on Wolff. No running text, but RSV is base of discussion. Good background provided at the beginning of each section discussed; good coverage of details translators need, except that translational decisions must somehow be made. Hebrew frequently transliterated, knowledge of Hebrew assumed, but reasonable clarity is there for those untrained.
Recommendation:Hosea

Title:1988
Collection Title:A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Gospel According to Saint Matthew
Publisher:Edinburgh
Pages:T & T Clark
Series:xlvii, 731 p.
Keywords:Introduction discusses in detail (148 pages) authorship, structure, literary characteristics, sources, date, local origin, and text. Helpful diagrams compare scholarly opinion or trace research. Discussion of each pericope includes structure (a good outline, reflecting discourse analysis), sources, detailed exegesis, concluding observations, and bibliography. Thorough knowledge of Greek assumed. Scholarly level of language. Discussion based on Nestle-Aland26 and the Huck-Greeven Synopse, 1981. Information surprisingly easy to retrieve from such heavy treatment. Highly recommended for general and detailed information needed for translation. (The International Critical Commentary). Three volumes (eventually): Volume 1, introduction and chapters 1-7

Title:1985
Collection Title:1 Kings
Publisher:Waco, Texas
Pages:Word Books
Series:lxiv, 286 p.
Abstract:Word Biblical Commentary
Keywords:Introduction covers background (geographical, cultural, political, and religious situation), sacred history as theological testimony (biblical understanding of history, theological witness of historiography, and historicality of biblical narrative), literary composition (history of interpretation of 1 Kings, deuteronomist's method, and source material), and toward the original text (resources, problems, methods). A valuable parallel table of chapter-verse divisions by MT and versions. Author's translation as running text, followed by textual notes, form/structure/setting (good coverage of discourse), comments (good detail), and brief explanation. Good bibliographies. Hebrew used. Should be quite useful for translating.
Recommendation:Kings
