Title:Isaiah 13-39: A Commentary
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Westminster
Pages:xix, 412 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:(See Westermann for later chapters.) No introduction in the first volume, which is a completely rewritten edition, but introductory information woven into comments. Regards chapters 1-12 as a memorial of Isaiah, brought together in order to come to terms with the exile. Similarly, no introduction to second volume, but a preface of sorts discusses the structure and development of chapters 24-27, 36-39, and the intervening material. (Readers should be alert to author's definition of eschatology, apocalyptic, and protoapocalyptic.) Author's translation makes some emendations. Excellent discussion of discourse structure, the communication event, shedding light on details. Perhaps a bit difficult at first for some to retrieve information. Hebrew usually restricted to footnotes, but clarified when used in the text. Translated by R.A. Wilson

Title:Malachi: God's Unchanging Love
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Baker Book House
Pages:171 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers theme, author, date, division, and style. No running text, but RSV, NIV quoted. Emphasis on homiletician's needs, but covers much useful for translators. Chief value: the appendix that diagrams the discourse structure of both the Hebrew and a formal translation; some of the structural divisions, however, are debatable. Hebrew used but explained.

Title:Commentary on Romans
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxix, 428 p.
Abstract:The tone of this volume is sometimes polemical and represents the life-long study of a German scholar in the historical-critical tradition. Käsemann divides his commentary into sections focused on the righteousness of God, which he sees as the major theological focus of Romans. It is heavy reading and emphasizes theological rather than historical questions. One does not turn here to "look up" a verse or two, yet there is much attention to exegetical matters for those willing to dig it out. [Roger L. Omanson, TBT 41:124] Translated and edited by G.W. Bromiley

Title:The IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament
Place:Downers Grove, Illinois
Publisher:InterVarsity Press
Pages:842 p.
Abstract:This volume aims to provide cultural and historical background for every verse of the New Testament, but it is written for average Bible users rather than for scholars. It includes introductions and bibliographical suggestions for each book of the NT and a helpful glossary at the end of the volume. Unfortunately it includes no index. Its chapter and verse organization enables users to find needed information quickly. It has the limitations of any one-volume commentary but provides a great deal of helpful information and suggestions for translators who are serious about understanding the background of the biblical text. -John E. Ellington

Title:A Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Baker Book House
Pages:viii, 264 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers the personalities, the critical problem, biographical setting, false teachers, the ministry, theological atmosphere, language and style, two preliminary conclusions (first century date, and a single author), authorship (Paul), date and mutual relations, and bibliography. Author's translation as running text, a lively representation of the Greek. Good, balanced judgment in dealing with details; explains progression of discourse fairly well. Greek rarely mentioned, always explained. Sometimes Greek grammar terms are used without clarification, but language level generally easy. (Thornapple Commentaries)

Title:A Commentary on the Epistles of Peter and of Jude
Place:London
Publisher:A. & C. Black
Series:Black's New Testament Commentaries
Abstract:Gives a full treatment of the text, although not all comments are relevant to the translation task. By contrast, the introduction is rather thin. The level of English and the style of presentation are somewhat difficult, even though the book is not excessively technical. [Euan McG. Fry]

Title:Amos, Hosea, Micah: An Archaeological Commentary
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Westminster
Pages:176 p.
Abstract:This is not a commentary in the usual sense, but rather a commentary on archaeological findings and how they relate to the period of the prophets. After a chapter on the period of the eighth-century prophets, following chapters discuss: historical and geographical setting; architecture, fortifications, warfare; cult; agriculture, plants, animals; and luxury. Good indexes will relate specific subjects to biblical texts for the translator. An excellent background book for use prior to translating any prophets, and possibly before translating the Samuel-Kings-Chronicles section.
