Goldingay on Psalms and Other Commentary Updates

1st February 2007

goldingay_psalms.jpgI’ve added a few new commentaries in the Wisdom & Psalms section of my OT Commentary Survey.

One commentary that I want to single out among the updates is John Goldingay’s superb volume on Psalms 1-41:

I have always liked John Goldingay’s scholarship and this volume on the Psalter is no exception. Goldingay interacts with the best scholarship on the Psalms and presents it in a warm and engaging style that is both academically sound and theologically relevant. As such his commentary is ideal for pastors and Christian scholars and laypeople will also find it extremely accessible. I highly recommend it!

Another new commentary on the Psalms is in the popular Believers Church Bible Commentary:

There is also a new commentary on Proverbs by biblical studies doyen Tremper Longman:

Hot off the press is a new commentary on Ecclesiastes that looks at the reception history of the book:

    Yes, this new series by Baker is exciting, and I’ve heard good things about Christianson.
    Samuel Balentine’s new commentary on Job (Smyth & Helwys, 2007) is a prime candidate for your list. I have read the introduction (which is available online), and it looks like Balentine has made a creative and valuable contribution to Joban studies.
