Over the centuries, the prophetic book of Zechariah has suffered from accusations of obscurity and has frustrated readers seeking to unlock its treasures. This work by Mark Boda provides insightful commentary on Zechariah, with great sensitivity to its historical, literary, and theological dimensions. Including a fresh translation of Zechariah from the original Hebrew, Boda delivers deep and thorough reflection on a too-often-neglected book of the Old Testament.

The book of Zechariah fascinates us and informs us about the postexilic Judean community’s relationship with God. Mark Boda, a master of this time period and this genre, opens up the book to readers today. His commentary is clear and profound, informative and illuminating. Everyone who studies Zechariah must read Boda’s work, which makes an important contribution to scholarship and to the church.

—Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

A most welcome addition to the excellent NICOT series. Boda is an established expert on this difficult and wonderful book, and here he brings his huge learning to bear on it in such a way as to unfold its many dimensions. His commentary is always accessible and is governed by a deep concern to interpret theologically and pastorally. . . A model for interpreting the Prophets and, indeed, the whole Old Testament.

—Gordon McConville, professor of Old Testament theology, University of Gloucestershire

In this substantial commentary Boda brings to a climax his many years of detailed study of Zechariah, deploying his considerable scholarly strengths in a comprehensive yet clear manner. . . This volume will serve for many years as a standard resource for scholars and laypeople alike.

—H.G.M. Williamson, Regius Professor of Hebrew, University of Oxford

A major and comprehensive commentary on Zechariah. It is replete with a fresh translation, detailed philological and text-critical notes, and commentary using a variety of critical perspectives, with particular attention to intertextual issues. . . Anyone interested in the book of Zechariah will need to consult this volume.

—David L. Petersen, Franklin N. Parker Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Candler School of Theology

This fine exposition of Zechariah represents a most welcome addition to commentary on this book. Mark Boda has a great eye both for the detail of the text and for its intertextuality.

The Epistle to the Romans

  • Author: Richard N. Longenecker
  • Editors: I. Howard Marshall and Donald A. Hagner
  • Series: The New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC)
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 1208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This highly anticipated commentary on the Greek text of Romans by veteran New Testament scholar Richard Longenecker provides solid scholarship and innovative solutions to long-standing interpretive problems. Critical, exegetical, and constructive, yet pastoral in its application, Longenecker’s monumental work on Romans sets a course for the future that will promote a better understanding of this most famous of Paul’s letters and a more relevant contextualization of its message.

Paul’s letter to the Romans is like Mount Everest in its grandeur and beauty. How fitting it is, then, for one of the deans of New Testament scholarship, Richard Longenecker, to present his interpretation of the letter in this magisterial commentary. All the virtues of Longenecker’s work are evident here: in-depth exegesis, careful evaluation of the literary and historical setting of the letter, and consideration of the letter’s message for readers today. Interpreters of Romans are indebted to Longenecker and will want to consult his work regularly.

—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and professor of biblical theology, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

With characteristic care, thoroughness, and insight, Richard Longenecker delivers what he promises: appreciative interaction with the interpretation of Romans over the centuries; critical, exegetical, and pastorally sensitive analysis of the text; and contextual reflections on this most influential of Paul’s letters in contemporary terms. All serious students of Paul would do well to read this commentary; it will become a standard resource and guide for many years to come.

—Susan Eastman, associate research professor of New Testament, Duke Divinity School

In every generation two or three commentaries on Romans appear that define the discussion for years to come. This commentary by Richard Longenecker is just such a work. It is clearly and judiciously written and comprehensive in scope. In addition to dealing with all of the relevant ancient and modern literature on Romans, it provides a close reading of the Greek text without losing the reader’s attention. Most importantly, it highlights the theological content and continuing importance of Romans for the church today. I enthusiastically recommend Longenecker’s work for those who want to engage Romans seriously on an exegetical and theological level.

—Frank J. Matera, professor, Catholic University of America

Richard N. Longenecker is professor emeritus of New Testament at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. His many other books include The Christology of Early Jewish Christianity, New Testament Social Ethics for Today, Introducing Romans: Critical Issues in Paul’s Most Famous Letter, and the New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Romans.
