Title:The Second Epistle to the Corinthians
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxx, 662 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers general history of Corinth and Paul's relationship with its Christians, and then deals with issues: literary (unity with chapters 10-13, within 1-9; and cultural diversity within the letter), historical (old and new problems, the "false apostles"), theological (themes, and background in Isaiah 40-55), and pastoral ministry. Generally conservative approach. NIV running text, by sections, occasionally with author's variations, followed by discussion and treatment of each verse. Textual footnotes are added to the discussion, not to the running text. Dwells on significance, implications, theology; details needed for translation are often lacking or difficult to retrieve. Greek is chiefly limited to the footnotes. (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)

Title:A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles
Place:Edinburgh
Publisher:T. & T. Clark
Pages:xxv, 693 p.
Abstract:A fuller introduction is to appear in the second volume. The Preliminary Introduction discusses text, Acts and its author, sources and plan for Acts 1-14, and contents (outline). Material provides good, balanced scholarly viewpoint on all aspects. Running text is apparently that of the author. Background information is handled well for translators, and the details are all accounted for. This very readable commentary assumes and requires competence in Greek; references to other works are in language of writing, e.g., German.

Title:The Book around Immanuel: Style and Structure in Isaiah 2-12
Place:Winona Lake, Indiana
Publisher:Eisenbrauns
Pages:x, 287 p.
Series:Biblical and Judaic Studies
Abstract:Introduction to this rather technical work includes background studies and issues, current issues and objectives of this study, and method used. Notes on boundaries for each unit are followed by the Hebrew text, matched in parallel columns with syllable count and stress count for every line, with author's formal correspondent translation on the facing page, but also in parallel. This is followed by notes on translation and text, lineation, syllable and stress counts, prose particles, verse and strophe structure, gross structure, and thought progression. Most details as well as general information on each section as needed by translators is there, but one needs skill to retrieve what is needed. Hebrew knowledge is essential. A foundational work for details of poetic structure.

Author's translation useful for nuances, not as base or model. Thorough coverage, but much reading needed for retrieval of translation information from nonrelevant matter.

Treatment: bibliography for pericope; author's translation; textual notes (Greek needed); form/structure/setting; comment (Greek used but explained); and explanation. A careful explanation of details under "Comment." Significance of larger segments covered in "Form/Structure/Setting" and in "Explanation." Information can be retrieved with practice.
