Title:1 & 2 Thessalonians
Place:Waco, Texas
Publisher:Word Books
Pages:xlvii, 228 p.
Series:Word Biblical Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers background (Macedonia's history, arrival of gospel, Christianity at Thessalonica, Paul's plan of action in Macedonia, his relation with Macedonian churches) and the letters (authorship, date, occasion, early Christian experience at Thessalonica, eschatology at Thessalonica, problems of relation between the two letters, various solutions, and Christian doctrine in Thessalonians). 2 Thes 2 ends with a 10-page excursus on Antichrist. Somewhat conservative, dates letters in canonical order. Outline for presenting each pericope: specific bibliography; author's translation; notes on Greek text; "Form/Structure/Setting," covering discourse features; detailed comments on Greek text; and "Explanation" of significance of text with regard to its own details as well as the fuller context. Greek required.

Title:The Gospel of John: Introduction, Exposition and Notes
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xii, 425 p.
Abstract:Introduction covers the evangelist and his Gospel (identity not stated; tradition interacting with eyewitness), the fourth Gospel in the early church, the message, bibliography, and outline. Written for nonprofessional readers. Author's translation is mixed formal and dynamic equivalent, sometimes quite useful. Discusses the important details, key terms, adequately and clearly. Relation between, and movement within, larger segments discussed for significance, not for form. Significant Hebrew and Greek terms clarified. Textual and other notes conclude each chapter.

Title:Philippians: A Good News Commentary
Place:San Francisco
Publisher:Harper & Row
Pages:xxxiii, 154 p.
Series:Good News Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers background (Philippi, Macedonia, coming of the gospel, the church of Philippi) and character, occasion, and purpose. GNB running text. Each segment of text followed by a brief description of context, then by detailed popular notes. Scholarly "Additional Notes" follow, and Greek is used, usually explained but not always clearly. A high language level is sometimes used, but generally quite useful for a second-language reader of English. (See Mark, Hurtado, for comments on series.)

Title:The Epistles to the Colossians, to Philemon, and to the Ephesians
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxviii, 442.
Abstract:Introduction to Colossians discusses the Lycus valley (cities, Jewish settlement, christianity there), the "Colossian heresy," the letter's teaching, and some critical questions. Introduction to Philemon discusses authorship, date, provenance, Paul and Onesimus, and the letter's significance. Introduction to Ephesians discusses its position in the Pauline corpus, the parousia and the Spirit, imagery, incipient catholicism, and the letter's nature and purpose. Generally opts for a conservative stance, after considering diverse scholarly views. Author's formal correspondent translation as running text. A homiletical-devotional purpose seems to reduce translational value somewhat, but there is concern for general structure, relation of parts, and some details. Scholarly references and text-critical discussion in footnotes, but Greek not used in the comments. (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)

Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan; Edinburgh
Publisher:Eerdmans; Handsel Press
Pages:x, 222 p.; xi, 298 p.
Series:International Theological Commentary
Abstract:Introduction covers both volumes, discusses historical context, theological traditions (history related to covenant with Yahweh, the pathos of Yahweh, and the royal-temple ideology), the book (views on the three strands), the person of Jeremiah, and an interpretive perspective (sociological, literary). No running text. Provides much background, also general discussion of significance, theology, but few details, little or nothing on discourse analysis (book too short). Hebrew sometimes mentioned, always clarified.

Title:Leviticus
Place:Grand Rapids, Michigan
Publisher:Eerdmans
Pages:xxiv, 395 p.
Series:New Century Bible Commentary
Abstract:The very good introduction discusses: title, text, content, authorship and redaction (good discussion), sources and component parts (reviews the scholarly findings), forms and style, holiness, sacrifice, and theology (priestly). No running text, but based on NRSV. Each section is introduced by a brief outline, followed by general and specific section introductions preceding treatment of verses. The technical terms of Leviticus are clearly discussed, so most details needed by translators are available and retrievable. Hebrew not cited. Language level fairly clear for second-language English readers.
