Pages:xxvi, xxxvi, 1642 p.
Abstract:Lengthy introduction (270 p.) discusses current state and topics of Lukan studies, the evangelist, date, his readers, composition of the Gospel, language and style, text, outline, and theology.

Title:Revelation
Place:Garden City, NY
Publisher:Doubleday
Pages:xlviii, 456 p.
Series:Anchor Bible
Abstract:Introduction covers author's hypothesis on development of Revelation (4-11, Baptist's creed; 12-22, later disciples of Baptist; 1-3, a later Jewish Christian); NT and Post-NT Christian apocalypses; character of Rev.; authorship, the last two chapters; the Christian prefix; structure. Author's translation, first in traditional order, then discussed in hypothetical order. Many good details, but mixed with suggestions not yet tested for reliability. Some useful illustrations. Greek used occasionally, clarified.

Title:The Epistle of Paul to the Ephesians: An Introduction and Commentary
Place:Leicester, England; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Inter-Varsity Press; Eerdmans
Pages:182 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses nature and teaching of the letter, destination, relation with Colossians and with other New Testament writings, arguments for a later date, and authorship questions (takes a conservative stance on Pauline authorship for Colossians and Ephesians, in that order). No running text, but KJV base. Somewhat theological, almost devotional, in purpose, so translation matters don't receive the best coverage. Greek explained when used. (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)
Keywords:Ephesians

Title:Qohelet and His Contradictions
Place:Sheffield
Publisher:Almond Press
Pages:384 p.
Series:JSOT Supplement Series
Abstract:Only chapter 5 (page 151-359) is commentary; the rest is "introductory" and excellent as a study of the thought and purpose of the book--although not everyone will agree with every conclusion. He accepts the contradictions of the book as examples of Qohelet's attempt to grapple with reality. Lack of Hebrew skill should not interfere too greatly with understanding; however, general language level is not common English. Discusses meaning of hebel and re`ut-ruach; toil and pleasure; Qohelet's epistemology; justice and theodicy. First excursus at end of commentary is author's paraphrase.

Title:Isaiah 46, 47, and 48: A New Literary-Critical Reading
Place:Winona Lake, Indiana
Publisher:Eisenbrauns
Pages:x, 293 p.
Series:Biblical and Judaic Studies
Abstract:This volume covers but a short segment of Isaiah, yet should be listed here as a thorough example of what can be done. There is a full accounting for numbers of words, syllables, and accents prior to each section, followed by useful information on every verse. Useless unless one knows Hebrew.

Title:The Epistle to the Galatians
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxxiii, 342 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses: location of Galatian churches (favors southern theory); identity of agitators (favors rigid Jewish Christians); date (lengthy discussion, favors eve of Jerusalem council, 48 A.D.); and genre of epistle (not primarily apologetic). Favors a conservative position. NEB running text. Rather good explanation of details translators need, with a good presentation of the situation out of which the letter grew and the logical flow of the letter. Greek frequently romanized, always explained clearly. (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)
