Author:Hagner, Donald A.
Year:1983
Title:Hebrews: A Good News Commentary
Place:San Francisco
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xxviii, 257 p.
Series:Good News Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers addressees (map of diaspora), date, author, purpose, form and structure, interpretation of the Old Testament, and theological perspective. TEV running text. Fairly good scholarship, conservative. Discusses the argument, purpose, background of each pericope. Detailed discussion useful for translators, information easily retrievable. Usually agrees with and defends TEV, shows what has been "added," but misuses the term "paraphrase." But useful for translators, once his terminology and background are understood. Greek discussed and explained in "Additional Notes" to each pericope. (See Mark, Hurtado, for comments on series.)

Title:Ezekiel
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xiii, 363 p.
Series:Forms of the Old Testament Literature
Abstract:For general description of the series, see Coats on Genesis. All discussions are divided according to structure, genre, setting, and intention, including the introduction to the book and the discussion of individual pericopes. No running text. The chief benefit for translation is in terms of discourse analysis, while other needs of translators must be met elsewhere. Knowledge of Hebrew will be useful but is not absolutely essential.

Title:The Book of Genesis: Chapters 1-17; Chapters 18-50
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xviii, 522 p., vol 1; xx, 774 p., vol 2.
Series:New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Abstract:The fairly thorough introduction covers quite well the necessary information. It is written on a level that can be understood by the nonspecialist who would profit from the details. The introduction discusses the title, the structure, the composition (a good historical review of the issues), theology, problems in interpretation ("days" in Gen 1; "myth"; historicity of the patriarchs; the religion of the patriarchs), canonicity, and the Hebrew text. Argues well, not always convincingly, for a conservative stance; exercises good balance with reality within that framework, sometimes avoiding a firm stance (e.g., on identity of "sons of God," 6.2). Author's translation given in pericopes, followed by discussion of verses, footnotes added. Good on structure, movement of the text. Most details needed for translation are there, but not always applicable beyond English; information fairly easy to retrieve. Hebrew referred to regularly, transliterated; knowledge assumed, yet not completely essential. 2 volumes

Title:Inheriting the Land: A Commentary on the Book of Joshua
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:xxiii, 207 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers interpreting the book, the layers and structures of the Joshua story, socio-historical review of the Canaanites and the Israelites, and a proposed reconstruction of the history, 1200-532 B.C. Author follows the general interpretation of Gottwald, providing theological significance to the sources forming the book. Good brief studies of key words. Helpful for analysis of structure. Theological purpose makes the search for translational help difficult at times, but a useful secondary resource. Hebrew not needed but helpful. No running text; quotes from RSV.

Title:At Risk in the Promised Land: A Commentary on the Book of Judges
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:xii, 182 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Brief but important introduction discusses Judges as reflecting "our promised land," the deuteronomic context, author (a scribe of the deuteronomic group, about 500 years after the events), history intentionally remembered, and a proposed historical context of the book. For each section discussed there is a good review of form and structure, and each section concludes with "Perspectives" that are not only theological but related to cultural and historical context. Not a detailed, word-for-word commentary, but covers truly essential information. No running text; Hebrew transliterated when used, with lucid explanation.

Title:Surely There Is a Future: A Commentary on the Book of Ruth
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xi, 82 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Brief introduction discusses the book as literature, as history, as part of the canon (in relation to the history of Israel and to Israel's annual agricultural cycle), and the book as message. No running text, quotes a variety of English versions. Provides excellent background information throughout, along with good exegesis. Although intended as theological commentary, many details important for translators are included, though some are, of course lacking. Hebrew often transliterated, clearly explained for the untrained. A clear level of English for universal understanding.
