Title:The Gospel According to St. Luke: An Introduction and Commentary
Place:Leicester, England; Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Inter-Varsity Press; Eerdmans
Pages:350 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses authorship (Luke), date, language, Luke as theologian, and relation of Luke to other Gospels (leaves order of writing open; outlines the issues but leaves the outcome uncertain). No running text, but RSV base. Good, clear overview of every verse, yet misses many issues important to translators. May be useful as an extra resource. Greek clearly explained when used. (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)

Title:Reflections on the Gospel of John. Vol.1: The Word Was Made Flesh John 1-5
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Baker
Pages:v, 201 p.
Abstract:Not the usual commentary, but deals with key ideas in each unit. In first nine pages the reader learns meaning of "Word" in Greek, Jewish, and Christian thought; what a "Targum" is; who the Docetists were; what "flesh" means. Although devotional in tone, a fine means for helping translators see the background and what is happening functionally in each unit. NIV running text, author's translation in many comments. Not every verse or detail covered. Conservative stance. Clear explanations, lay person's level. Greek used as needed, very clearly explained.

Title:The Epistle to the Romans
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Leicester, England
Publisher:Eerdmans; Inter-Varsity Press
Pages:xii, 578 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses author, destination, date and place of writing, occasion, contents, the shorter edition(s), and the destination of chapter 16. Tends to opt for the conservative when dealing with issues. NIV running text. Exposition is thorough, much information beyond translator's needs, yet information not difficult to retrieve. Level of English used is reasonable for second-language speakers. Greek limited to the copious footnotes.

Author:Moule, C.F.D.
Year:1957
Title:The Epistles to the Colossians and to Philemon
Place:Cambridge
Publisher:Cambridge University Press
Pages:xiii, 170 p.
Abstract:This commentary on the Greek text is now somewhat dated, but it remains a concise, valuable study which translators may find less daunting than O'Brien's commentary, which surpasses Moule's study both in scope and in depth. [Roger L. Omanson, TBT 41:130] (Cambridge Greek Testament Commentary)

Place:London
Publisher:Epworth
Pages:xi, 135 p.
Abstract:Brief introduction groups all three as Pauline, gives date and place, and background of each letter. RV base, but no running text. Highly compact, yet much information for translation on background, situation, details, alternate translations. Greek not needed. (Epworth Preacher's Commentaries)
Keywords:Ephesians; Colossians; Ephesians

Title:The Book of Revelation
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:426 p.
Series:New International Commentary on the New Testament
Abstract:Introduction covers apocalyptic literature; authorship; date; circulation and reception in the early church; approaches to interpretation; structure; and analysis. Based on ASV, quotes RSV. Interpretation relates to history of the writer's period, with predictions about the End (last chapters) yet to be fulfilled. Very good coverage of details for translators, cultural-historical backgrounds, structure of text. Greek and Hebrew restricted to footnotes, which are equally good.
Keywords:Revelation

Title:Matthew: A Good News Commentary
Place:San Francisco
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xvii, 242 p.
Abstract:Brief introduction discusses authorship, setting and date, structure, characteristics, and interpretive approach of the community (conservative). TEV text displayed by chapters, followed by discussion of sections and a few "additional notes." Discusses general background and significance of each section (very conscious of Jewish midrash tradition) but omits many elements important for translators. (Less useful than other books in this series; see Mark, Hurtado, for description of series.) Greek used frequently but explained.

Title:Wisdom Literature: Job, Proverbs, Ruth, Canticles, Ecclesiastes, and Esther
Place:Grand Rapids
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xiii, 185 p.
Series:Forms of the Old Testament Literature
Abstract:A terse discussion, by section, of structure (outline), genre, setting, intention. Useful for important information on form, scope, and general content, but little or no help on details. Good introduction to Wisdom forms. Author uses good judgment in not forcing form onto the text. See Coats, Genesis, for comments on series.
