Title:Galatians
Place:Nashville
Publisher:Broadman & Holman
Pages:463 p.
Abstract:Fairly useful introduction covers the outstanding issues, presenting leading opinions, opting for a conservative stance. NIV running text. Broader discourse covered quite well, and this volume digs into useful details far better than do other volumes in the series; occasionally some of this may be hard to retrieve because of theological emphases beyond translational needs. Greek frequently transliterated and clearly explained. (The New American Commentary, 30)

Psalms 1-60 discussed in terms of: text, structure (most attention to this heading), genre, setting, and intention (bibliography for each psalm). Glossary defines genres and formulas. No index until final volumes are published. A rich source of data for discourse analysis, and important for authors of Helps. Good bibliographies. Translators with advanced training will be able to retrieve useful information. Knowledge of Hebrew useful.

Title:In Turns of Tempest: A Reading of Job, with a translation
Place:Stanford, California
Publisher:Stanford University Press
Pages:xiv, 496 p.
Abstract:The "dispensable" introduction discusses authorship, dating, relationship to other literature; the "indispensable" introduction discusses characteristics of Hebrew poetry and an analysis of the problems of translating Job. This volume comes closer than many to dealing with the very problems one faces in translation, based on determining how to "read" it. Author's formal translation provided, with good textual notes; leaves blanks where he cannot determine the "reading." Comments concentrate on message, by section and by sentence; details frequently covered by chance or necessity. Favors interpretation against contemporary mythological traditions. Hebrew used regularly.
