Author:Heil, John Paul
Year:1987
Title:Paul's Letter to the Romans: A Reader-Response Commentary
Place:New York
Publisher:Paulist Press
Pages:xii, 195 p.
Abstract:Introduction gives a simple explanation of reader-response theory and how author applies it in this commentary; discusses contemporary apocalyptic-eschatological mindset, Paul as epistolary author, Roman Christians as epistolary audience (implied, not real), and the letter as a literary-rhetorical communication (style, use of scripture, desired responses from implied readers). Running text is author's useful formal correspondent translation. Handles structures, milieu very well throughout. However, some details are missed completely, while others given good, clear explanation. Occasional citing of Greek is covered by clear explanation. Especially useful for anticipating whether today's reader will respond as did Paul's audience.

Title:1 and 2 Peter, Jude
Place:Peabody, Mass
Publisher:Hendrickson
Pages:xv, 297 p.
Series:New International Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction to 1 Peter discusses: writer; date; readers; purpose; persecutions; literary form; and relation to other NT books. Introduction to 2 Peter follows similar lines, leaning toward traditional identity of writer; it also outlines the literary relations between 2 Peter and Jude, suggesting a common written source, but also outlining differences, plus listing similarities between 1 and 2 Peter. The Jude introduction deals with the same pattern of information but more briefly, much being covered earlier. No running text, but discussion based on NIV. Less in this volume on overall structure, possibly because of the nature of the letters. Details covered more than anticipated in this brief volume. Greek transliterations often appear, are explained.

Many details required by translators provided; flow of narrative text usually easy to follow. Hebrew used, usually explained, but discussion often requires knowledge of Hebrew.
