Title:1 and 2 Chronicles
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xv, 439 p.
Series:The Forms of the Old Testament Literature
Abstract:For general comments on the series, see Coats on Genesis. Introduction discusses the Ezra-Nehemiah/Chronicles collocation, the redacted version of Chronicles, and the original version, treating in each case structure, genre, setting, and intention. No running text. Each pericope also discussed on basis of structure, genre, setting, and intention. While the material is excellent for understanding discourse structures, other concerns of translators are largely absent. Knowledge of Hebrew will be useful but not an absolute essential.

Title:A Commentary on the Book of Job
Place:Nashville
Publisher:Thos. Nelson and Sons
Pages:ix, ccxxiv, 675 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses: name and place in the canon; brief analysis; the prose narrative; the poetic dialogue; the speeches of Elihu; the speeches of Yahweh; composition; teaching; the Book of Job in the OT; language; meters and strophes; text and versions; and history of its exegesis. Much new information available since the French original of 1926, yet this is a classic. Verse-by-verse discussion. Author's translation. Hebrew required.

Title:The Wisdom of Ben Sira: A New Translation with Notes, Introduction and Commentary
Place:Garden City, NY
Publisher:Doubleday
Pages:xxiii, 620 p.
Series:Anchor Bible
Abstract:The most thorough volume available on Sirach. The translation is by Skehan. It relies often on the Hebrew and is often word-for-word with NAB (on which Skehan worked). Skehan did not live to finish the translation; it was finished by his colleague di Lella, who was providing the introduction and commentary. The introduction is full, covering author, place in the canon and in the wisdom literature, poetic form, and theology. Much space is given to the complex textual situation. The commentary is useful but requires patience and work. Comments of great help to the translator are buried in long paragraphs full of less practical help, often matters dealing with Hebrew literary patterns. [Bullard]

Title:The Pastoral Epistles: A Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Fortress
Pages:xx, 175 p.
Abstract:Somewhat brief introduction discusses: authenticity; literary character; and theological character. Other items normally in an introduction are included at appropriate points in the comments, as excursus. Authors'/translators' formal equivalent translation is the running text. Thorough scholarly coverage of information; logical progress of discourse covered in process of explaining theology; details usually quite good, occasionally assume knowledge of what a translator needs to know. Scholarly level of language; knowledge of Greek assumed. (Hermeneia). Translated by Philip Buttolph and Adela Yarbro

Title:Romans 1-8; Romans 9-16
Place:Dallas, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:lxxii, 513; xxxviii, 515-976 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses author, recipients, purpose, formal and theological coherence of the letter, and the new perspective on Paul (an important discussion on Paul and the Law, refuting traditional postreformation understanding of Pharisaic Judaism). Format follows that of the Word series, thorough, scholarly development, and one not acquainted with Greek may find it difficult to retrieve information. Two volumes

Title:The Epistles to the Colossians and to Philemon
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Carlisle
Publisher:Eerdmans; Paternoster
Pages:xvii, 388 p.
Abstract:Introduction of Colossians discusses the letters significance, the city and christianity's establishment there, the trouble at Colossae, author, time and place of writing, and structure of the letter. Introduction to Philemon discusses author, recipient, occasion, place of writing, and structure. Running text is apparently the author's translation. This is a direct commentary on the Greek text, which is printed out in full at the beginning of each verse discussion. Larger segments of discourse are discussed first, and their relation to context is well clarified. Few details are missing, if any. Knowledge of Greek will be important, but discussion is clear enough for most readers, even if not trained in Greek. (The New International Greek Testament Commentary)

Title:Exodus
Place:Waco, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:xxxiv, 516 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses the book as a whole, the exodus in history and the book as history (left outside theologian's concern), text and translation, shape and content, and commentaries. Author's somewhat functional translation followed by textual notes, form/structure/setting, comment, and explanation. Good coverage of specific terms, of discourse, of background information. Information for translating not difficult to retrieve if one understands the system of presentation. Hebrew used, knowledge assumed, but information is usually clear without knowing Hebrew. English level reasonably clear.

Place:Sheffield
