The Apollos Old Testament Commentarry aims to take with equal seriousness the divine and human aspects of Scripture.  It expounds the books of the Old Testament in a scholarly manner accessible to non-experts, and shows the relevance of the Old Testament to modern readers.  Each commentary begins with an Introduction, which gives an overview of the issues of date, authorship, sources and so on, but which also outlines more fully than usual the theology of the book and provides pointers towards its interpretation and contemporary application.  The annotated Translation of the Hebrew text by the author forms the basis for the subsequent commentary.  The Form and Structure section examines the context of the passatge, its use of rhetorical devices, and source and form-critical issues.  The Comment section is a thorough, detailed exegesis of the historical and theological meaning of the passage.  The Explanation . . . offers a full exposition of the theological message within the framework of biblical theology . . .
