Title:The Book of Isaiah: Chapters 1-39
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xiii, 746 p.
Series:New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Abstract:Introduction discusses title, historical background (three periods, 739-701, 605-539, 539-400 B.C.), unity of composition (while acknowledging three sections), date and authorship (Isaiah, including predictive second and third sections), occasion, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, problems in interpretation, and analysis of contents (with outline). Moderately conservative stance generally preserves integrity of text in terms of the three periods addressed. Author's translation with textual notes, general discussion of pericope, then of individual verse. Concern for teaching, theology, is coupled with fairly good background discussion throughout. Many details translators need are covered. Hebrew used sparingly, always clarified.

Title:The Book of Isaiah: Chapters 40-66
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Cambridge
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xviii, 755 p.
Series:New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Abstract:Introduction further develops issues from the first volume; discusses composition, and content and structure. He presses for the idea that one author is responsible for the entire book, and he maintains that the parts assigned to a later date would have had their relevance at an earlier time as well. Comments on usefulness of the first volume for translation apply here as well.

Title:Colossians, Philemon
Place:Waco, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:liv, 328 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction to Colossians covers the milieu of Colossae, its church, occasion of letter, the "Colossian Heresy," Paul's handling of Colossian philosophy, authenticity of letter (defended), and place of Paul's imprisonment. Introduction to Philemon covers nature of letter, recipient, occasion, structure, place of origin, date, authenticity, and the slavery question. Discussion of each pericope has the outline: bibliography; (author's) translation; form/structure/setting; comment (on Greek text); and (brief) explanation (of significance of text and context). Lengthy material, with translational information difficult to retrieve at times. Greek needed.

Title:The Epistle to the Philippians: A Commentary on the Greek Text
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xli, 597 p.
Abstract:Introduction discusses Philippi (the city, religious life, coming of the gospel) and the letter (authorship, integrity, date and provenance, Paul's opponents and the false teachers, purpose of letter, structure). Thorough coverage of all issues. Running text is apparently author's formal correspondent translation. This is followed by textual notes, then commentary (often heavily footnoted), with special addenda as needed to cover specific subjects. Attention to literary details especially useful. Information normally not difficult for a scholar to retrieve. Assumes reader knows Greek, which is not transliterated nor given English equivalents. (New International Greek Testament Commentary)

Author:Palmer, Earl F.
Year:1983
Title:1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Good News Commentary
Place:San Francisco
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xx, 88 p.
Series:Good News Commentary
Abstract:Brief introduction covers Palmer's theological objective, epistle's historical background, and the church of Thessalonica according to Acts. Maintains Pauline authorship. GNB running text. Sometimes discusses each segment in general. Notes use Greek regularly, explained for those who don't understand, but etymologies perhaps overemphasized. "Additional Notes" have further scholarly information. Retrieval of information not always easy. Departs somewhat from objective of series (see Mark, Hurtado).
