Theological Bible Commentary

Most one-volume Bible commentaries focus on standard scholarly issues, answering questions such as who wrote the book, who was addressed, and how the book is structured. In contrast, this is the first one volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: What does each biblical book say about God? How does the book describe God and portray God's actions? Who is God in these biblical books?

In contrast, this is the first one-volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: what does each biblical book say about God? how does the book describe God and portray God's actions? and who is God in these biblical books? This volume meets the need for a resource that puts the best of scholarship in conversation with the theological claims of the biblical text.

LutherMinnesotaAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5November 9, 2011LutherMinnesotaAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Great summary outline of the major themes of each of the books of the Bible. Each chapter, written by a different author/theologian, reflects a thoughtful, scholarly, analysis of the issues of authorship, literary background and theological interpretation. A commentary on each book's major themes, broken down into chapter/verse headings, is also included. I highly recommend this book to seminary students, as well as to those seeking a more in-depth reading of the Bible.
