Year:1986
Title:I, II, III John
Place:Minneapolis
Publisher:Augsburg
Pages:159 p.
Series:Augsburg Commentary on the New Testament
Abstract:Introduction discusses authorship (same community as fourth Gospel, different authors), literary nature, situation, and theological message. No running text, but RSV is base of discussion. Many details helpful for translators, as well as general logical progression, surprising for the short space available. But language level a bit high. Greek sometime referred to, usually explained.
Keywords:John 1-3

Abstract:Introduction covers the name Daniel, apocalyptic genre, chronology of the book (late date, 175-164 B.C.), literary composition, the formative milieu of the apocalypses, place of Daniel in canon, bilingualism in the book, the plan of the book, and chronology. Author's formal correspondent English translation. Critical notes on each section are followed by commentary. Thorough, balanced, scholarly work, useful for translation purposes.

Title:The Jonah Complex
Place:Atlanta
Publisher:John Knox Press
Pages:xxi, 168 p.
Abstract:This is a fascinating study of Jonah from both the theological aspect and the psychological, by a father-son team eminently qualified for the task. However, for translation purposes it may prove to have less information than is available in more traditional commentaries.
Keywords:Jonah

Author:Lane, William L.
Year:1974
Title:The Gospel According to Mark
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xvi, 652 p.
Abstract:Introduction deals with matters very much under discussion in 1974 but which may still be useful for translators today: development of Marcan studies to that point, the tradition concerning the Gospel, life situation that occasioned the Gospel, date, author, place of composition, style and literary method, and detailed outline. A somewhat coservative theological approach. ASV used as running text, for demonstrating literary form of the ancient text. Discussion of each verse does not present the ancient text, but Greek and Hebrew are referred to as needed in the scholarly footnotes. Chief value will be in the treatment of background, discourse structure, relation of one segment to another in keeping with objectives of the author. Details needed by translators are often in the footnotes, but just as often are not dealt with. (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)
