Author:Kistemaker, Simon J.
Title:Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pages:ix, 464 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses characteristics, author, message, canonicity, date, first readers, and general outline. Each chapter begins with detailed outline; major breaks observed rather than traditional chapters. Theologically conservative. NIV running text. Describes logical problems, form and structure, broader implications of the discourse, especially in summaries at end of chapters; many details also explained. Often concentrates on questions that are not the translator's concern. A nontechnical exposition is followed by doctrinal considerations, then by details in the Greek. Knowledge of Greek useful, not required. (New Testament Commentary)

Title:Revelation of God: A Commentary on the Books of The Song of Songs and Jonah
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pages:ix, 136 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Knight's introduction to "Song" briefly discusses issues of canon, appropriate use, and original milieu and purpose. No running text. "Theological Implications" appended. Good overview with some excellent details, but many details ignored which translators need; too compressed, perhaps. Hebrew clarified when used. Golka's even briefer introduction to Jonah discusses date and background. Better coverage of details on Jonah, with some excellent insights compressed into short form.

Title:The Pastoral Epistles: A Commentary on the Greek Text
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Carlisle, England
Publisher:Eerdmans; Paternoster
Pages:xxxiv, 514 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers in good detail the important issues from a conservative viewpoint, which is generally well argued: inner testimony on authorship, recipients, setting, and purposes; attestation in the early church; relationship to Acts and the other epistles (incongruencies, the release and second imprisonment); critical arguments concerning authorship (method of communication, manner of addressing Timothy and Titus, warnings against false teaching, ecclesiastical organization, theological differences, vocabulary and style, pseudonymity, possible Lukan involvement); and possible dates. No running text, but Greek quoted throughout, knowledge of Greek assumed. Covers general background and movement of text quite well; excellent coverage of details. Thorough treatment may sometimes make retrieval of specific information difficult, but this problem is not generally likely to occur. (New International Greek Testament Commentary)
Keywords:Timothy; Titus

Author:Kraus, Hans-Joachim
Title:Theology of the Psalms
Pages:235 p.
Abstract:We include this excellent book in this list, although it is not a commentary. Kraus deals with specific themes in the psalms, gathering them under the following major headings: 1. The God of Israel; 2. The People of God; 3. The Sanctuary and Its Worship; 4. The King; 5. The Enemy Powers; 6. The Individual in the Presence of God; and 7. The Psalms in the New Testament. Knowledge of Hebrew is required. This will make a fine companion volume to anything one uses for translating the psalms. Translated by Keith Crim
