Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book, looking especially at questions concerning its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology.  A select bibliography also points readers to resourceds for their own study.  The author's own translation from the original Hebrew forms the basis of the commentary proper.  Verse-by-verse comments nicely balance in-depth discussions of technical matters -- textual criticism, critical probelms, and so on  -- with exposition of the biblical writer's theology and its implications for the life of faith today.
