Pages:xxx, 352 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers author, addressees, date, text, literary composition and function, traditions and doctrinal presuppositions, and the theological argument. Historical-critical. Author's translation. Heavy, scholarly treatment, emphasis on rhetorical forms, good for discourse analysis, but misses many details, or information difficult to retrieve. Greek, some Latin, needed.

Author:Blenkinsopp, Joseph
Year:1988
Title:Ezra-Nehemiah: A Commentary
Place:Philadelphia
Publisher:Westminster
Pages:366 p.
Series:Old Testament Library
Abstract:Introduction discusses: how to read this text; Ezra-Nehemiah in the canon; contents; composition; Ezra-Nehemiah and "the Chronicler"; Ezra and Nehemiah in the Jewish tradition; the political and social context; and text and versions. Notable is his defense of unity of authoring of Ezra-Nehemiah and 1-2 Chronicles, although not by one person; also his view of incipient Judaism without the sometimes negative Christian view; also, a foray into the difficult subject of the Persian period. Author's translation is running text, with minimal textual footnotes. Discussion useful for clarifying the picture of what was going on, but often the details translators need are neglected. Hebrew referred to occasionally, normally clarified for those who don't know it. Highly significant for providing a good, scholarly Jewish viewpoint.

Title:The Book of Ezekiel: Chapters 1-24; Chapter 25-48
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxi, 887; xxiii, 826 p.
Series:New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Abstract:Introduction discusses background (Ezekiel's world), author, purpose and methods (Ezekiel's response), nature of prophecy and Ezekiel's literary style, the text, Ezekiel in Jewish and Christian tradition, and the enduring theology of Ezekiel (vision of God, of the people of God, and of the Messiah). Careful, scholarly work. Apparently author's translation serves as running text, with footnotes on the text. Structure of larger segments discussed as "Nature and Design." Good discussion of symbols as related to known iconography of the period. Reasonably good detail for translators, along with good background throughout, but some information may take time to retrieve. Hebrew is heavily used in transliteration, but those untrained may be able to follow the discussion. English level is not too difficult. 2 volumes

Title:Matthew
Place:Nashville

Introduction discusses structure, theology (Israel and the Gentiles, Christology, the fulfillment of Scripture, and discipleship and the church), purpose and audience, sources (leans toward Q + Matthew as the oldest of the synoptics), date, author, and historicity and genre. Demonstrates a reasonably balanced view on many difficult issues. NIV running text. Clearly shows structure (e.g., chiasmus when evident), movement of the text, many details clearly explained for translators. Good level of English used, Greek and Hebrew clearly explained when used. (The New American Commentary, Volume 22)

Abstract:Introduction discusses name and place in the canon; authenticity, integrity, scope; text; the chronicler and his sources; literary forms in Chronicles; purpose and date; and theological themes (temple, priests and levites, David and Solomon, all Israel, retribution, repentance, the disposition of the heart). Each pericope first has bibliography, then author's formal correspondent translation, textual notes, form/structure/setting, comment, and explanation. Details translators need are sometimes difficult to retrieve, but much important material is provided. Level of English slightly high for some translators. Hebrew and Greek often used but translation given.
