Author:Holmgren, Fredrick Carlson
Title:Israel Alive Again: A Commentary on the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:xviii, 162 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Introduction discusses author, date, character and focus, the persons Ezra and Nehemiah, and the two books in later literature. No running text. Concentrates on theological meaning, provides some background, but skips many details needed by translators. Perhaps useful as a secondary help. Hebrew not used.
Keywords:Ezra; Nehemiah
Recommendation:T? O

Author:Hooker, Morna D.
Title:The Gospel according to Saint Mark
Place:London; Peabody, Massachusetts
Publisher:A & C Black; Hendrickson
Pages:viii, 424 p.
Abstract:Introduction discussed the task of a commentator (comparison of approaches), authorship, place, and date, interpretation of the gospel, its shape, and the theology of Mark. Outline included. Author's somewhat formal correspondent translation serves as running text. Each pericope discussed begins with general description of section, relating it to context. Good background discussions. Details usually provided. Clear language level. Greek occasionally included, always clarified for the nontrained. (Black's New Testament Commentary)

Author:Houlden, J.L.
Title:A Commentary on the Johanine Epistles
Place:New York
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xi, 164 p.
Series:Harper's New Testament Commentaries
Abstract:Introduction covers the Johanine problem, the situation, structure, theological affinities, and history and acceptance. Concentrates on characteristics of the Christian community as source, rather than on identity of author. Author's translation. Discusses literary and formal character as well as other details. Requires ability to extract information from scholarly language at times; discussion not always according to textual order. But useful for translation purposes. Greek usually explained when used.
Keywords:John 1-3

Author:Hubbard, David Allan
Title:Joel and Amos: An Introduction and Commentary
Place:Leicester, England; Downers Grove, Illinois
Publisher:Inter-Varsity Press
Pages:245 p.
Series:Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries
Abstract:Rather good introductions to each book discuss: the prophecy (background, historical situation), place in the Canon, date, setting, unity and structure, literary forms (Amos only), the message, and the book in the New Testament. No running text, but discussion based on RSV. Careful attention to details; flow of discourse shown clearly. Hebrew frequently transliterated, but will not confuse the translator who knows no Hebrew.
Keywords:Joel; Amos

Author:Hubbard, Robert L.
Title:The Book of Ruth
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pages:xiv, 317 p.
Series:New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Abstract:Thorough and useful introduction discusses text, canonicity, literary criticism, authorship and date, purpose, setting, genre, legal background, themes, and theology. Apparently the author's dynamic-equivalent translation serves as running text, with comments following each subsection, according to the outline listed. Good coverage of details, and narrative discourse handled well. Hebrew transliterated, but knowledge of Hebrew not essential, except for the detailed and scholarly footnotes on both text and comments.
Recommendation:T, C

Author:Huey, F.B.
Title:Jeremiah, Lamentations
Pages:512 p.
Series:New American Commentary
Abstract:Introduction to Jeremiah discusses historical background, the prophet himself, formation and structure of the book, authorship, the Septuagint version, theology, and Jeremiah for our times. Introduction to Lamentations briefly deals with title, authorship, date, structure, historical setting, and theological values. Presents modern and conservative positions, defending conservative logic. NIV running text. A fair presentation of background of each pericope, but little help on poetic structures. Many details explained well for translators. Hebrew referred to in transliteration when useful; adequately explained. Theological, homiletical concerns regularly introduced.
Keywords:Jeremiah; Lamentations
Recommendation:T, O

Author:Hughes, Philip E.
Title:The Second Epistle to the Corinthians
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Exeter, U.K.
Publisher:Eerdmans; Paternoster Press
Pages:xxxvi, 508 p.
Abstract:Though not as stimulating as Barrett nor as exhaustive as Furnish, this conservative commentary in a conservative series still deals with issues of importance to translators. Though worth using, it is not worth buying if one has the commentaries by Barrett, Furnish or Martin. Hughes argues for the literary unity of 2 Corinthians. [Roger L. Omanson, TBT 41:126] (New International Commentary on the New Testament)

Author:Hughes, Philip Edgcumbe
Title:The Book of the Revelation: A Commentary
Place:Leicester, England; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Inter-Varsity Press; Eerdmans
Pages:242 p.
Abstract:Brief introduction emphasizes significance of the book but also discusses place in canon, author's amillenial position, generally conservative approach (e.g., Apostle John as author). Author's translation of running text and N.T. passages is fairly literal; RSV quoted for O.T. Table of Contents forms outline of the book. Lacks literary-rhetorical information but fairly good on those details discussed which are useful for translation. However, many important details are missed in the discussion. Greek not shown. This may be useful as a secondary help for translators, not primary.

Author:Hunter, Archibald M.
Title:Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians
Place:Richmond, Virginia
Publisher:John Knox
Pages:144 p.
Abstract:Too sparse. Devotional, interpretational, theological. (The Layman's Bible Commentary)
Keywords:Galatians; Ephesians; Philippians; Colossians

Author:Hurtado, Larry W.
Title:Mark: A Good News Commentary
Place:San Francisco
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xxv, 291 p.
Series:Good News Commentary
Abstract:Introduction compares other Gospels, gives circumstances for Mark's Gospel, major themes and emphases, literary style, and basic outline. Full GNB running text as base of discussion. This series is prepared for people with no "strong Christian background or formal theological education," and thus takes no prior understanding for granted. Critical issues that could be divisive are avoided. Each segment of text is followed by general comments indicating movement, background, relations within and outside the segment. Notes on individual expressions then receive brief but useful treatment; these notes may be too thin at times, but what is there is useful. No Greek.
