Title:Ezekiel 20-48
Place:Dallas, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:xxviii, 301 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:This commentary continues where Brownlee's leaves off. The introduction is independant of the first volume, yet does build on it somewhat. Discusses the person of the prophet, thematic structures and redaction of the book, and textual matters (presses for "earliest possible form of the text," i.e., "the redacted book"). Attempts to draw from both historical as well as literary-canonical criticism. Author's translation for each section, followed by textual notes, Form/Structure/Setting, Comments, and Explanation. Quite useful for translation, but one needs to understand the system of presentation before retrieving information efficiently. English level reasonably, though scholarly vocabulary utilized. Hebrew used regularly, usually clarified for the uninitiated.

Title:The Acts of the Apostles: An Introduction and Commentary
Place:Peabody, Mass
Publisher:Hendrickson
Pages:xlvi, 298 p.
Abstract:After a lengthy bibliography, introduction discusses author, occasion, purpose, sources, and structure. Written from conservative, Pentecostal perspective. Divided into pericopes, with discussion including: author's modern translation, comments (general discourse matters, plus good details for translators), exposition (theological matters discussed here, seldom relevant to translators), and bibliography. Sometimes uses references from other Gospel writers in a way that assumes continuity, harmony, but no serious problem noted for translation purposes. Good use of Greek, also for those who don't know Greek.
