The Genre of Biblical Commentary
Essays in Honor of John E. Hartley on the Occasion of His 75th Birthday
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"We have many commentaries on Old Testament books, but little reflection on the genre itself, a lack remedied by The Genre of Biblical Theology, a collection of essays from writers who are insightful and experienced commentary writers. How fitting it is that this volume celebrates the career of John Hartley, a scholar who provided the academy and the church with important commentaries himself. This volume should be read by all those write and who read commentaries."
--Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
"The commentary has been the most enduringly popular genre of biblical criticism. In this welcome volume, leading scholars pull back the curtain and give readers an uncommon look inside their processes and the way they think about the challenges and craft of writing commentaries."
--Christopher B. Hays, D. Wilson Moore Associate Professor of Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary
