This commentary is written in a very technical format employing Hebrew and Greek (LXX). Is discusses the historical critical issues, historicr reconstruction, and comparative studies. Due to the size of the secondary redaction in Nahum and Habakkuk, it dealt with in brief form. Form and rhetorical redaction is also touched upon occasionally. The major parts are textual critism and philology. A must have for any scholar!
This commentary builds on the work of previous scholarship and addresses contemporary issues. It gives serious attention to questions of textual criticism, philology, history, and Near Eastern backgrounds and is sensitive to the literary conventions characteristic of the prophetic literature of the Old Testament. The book is an earnest attempt to hear the message of the ancient prophets, a message that remains relevant today.
The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.
J. J. M. Roberts is the William Henry Green Professor Emeritus of Old Testament Literature at Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey.
