Product Description

The Old Testament Library is one of the most respected commentary series produced in the last 50 years. As with any series that reaches this level of respectability, it is comprehensive in scope while acknowledging that it is not exhaustive. Introductory matters cover historical concerns, cultural issues, the reception of the text, the integrity of the text, and other interpretive issues.

Each commentary provides a verse-by-verse analysis of critical exegetical matters that are then synthesized into a progressively building understanding of the text and interpretation. This includes analysis of problems in history, word meaning, syntactical and grammatical issues, text history, and many other exegetically relevant issues. Nevertheless, despite the breadth of their scope, volumes in teh series remain relatively compact in comparison to series who share its aims and scope.

Key Elements
  • Audience: Students, Pastors, and Scholars
  • Perspective: Moderate/Liberal (See Author)
  • Scripture: Inspired
  • General Acceptance of Higher Critical authorship theories, and the reader should be familiar with these type of textual criticism/li>
  • Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary, but a willingness to engage concepts from it will be necessary

    David Petersen first gave us Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 in the Old Testament Library (OTL) series. Later, he wrote a follow-up volumes His two books have been influential and oft-cited volumes for several years now.

    Considered by many as the best critical commentary out there, this book has several features that we of a more conservative persuasion can glean from.

    In this volume, Petersen deals first with Haggai and gives it its own Introduction. After some comments about how Haggai relates to the other Latter Prophets, he describes the times of the prophet. He really fleshed out that subject well and interacted with several other scholars. In his discussion of the book itself, he reviews the prose or poetry debate and went through his beliefs on composition. Though I could not agree with him, he stated his thoughts clearly. From there he jumped into his commentary itself. Its quality and design holds up well with the rest of the series.

    On page 107, Petersen begins his treatment of Zechariah 1-8. He immediately tells us that he follows the critical judgment of scholars over the years who have discerned a fundamental division between Zechariah 1-8 and 9-14. Though theres conservative scholars who disagree, he sets out and explains well the critical position.

    He begins in this case with describing the person of Zechariah. Next, he provides a lengthy section on the book in the same style as he did on Haggai. His viewpoint requires distinguishing what he sees as the different oracles in Zechariah.

    Overall, he provides as good a volume as is out there on these Prophets for those who seek a clear critical viewpoint.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
