Title:James
Place:Waco, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:cix, 240 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Lengthy introduction discusses: James in the NT (the Lord's brother); in Jewish Christianity (Gospel according to the Hebrews; Clementine literature); role in ecclesiastical circles (treatment by the Fathers); James and his epistle (historical questions; role in a Jerusalem setting; the letter; themes); backgrounds (wisdom, the righteous sufferer); structure and outline; canonical status. Assumes a double life for the letter, first as dealing with Jerusalem milieu, then as carried by James' disciples to Syria and a new milieu. Author's translation as running text. The usual format for each pericope: bibliography, translation, notes on text, form/structure/setting, comment, explanation. Reader must know Greek.

Title:God's People in Crisis: A Commentary on the Book of Amos, and A Commentary on the Book of Lamentations
Place:Edinburgh; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Handsel Press; Eerdmans
Pages:viii, 134 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Introductions to the two parts are rather thin but useful. While a theological purpose is primary in this series, some general information is presented that is useful for a translator. Perhaps useful in conjunction with the UBS Handbook. Amos section more useful than Lamentations, which frequently merely reiterates the content of the poem. Hebrew not required. No running text.
Keywords:Amos; Lamentations
