Praise for the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"The Brazos Theological Commentary offers just the right level of light to make illuminating the Word the joy it was meant to be."--Calvin Miller, author of A Hunger for the Holy and Loving God Up Close

From the Back Cover:

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Song of Songs, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

"Griffiths provides a wonderful commentary on the New Vulgate text of the Song of Songs. Readers will benefit from his introduction defending the value of the study of translations, his close study of the translation he has chosen, and his theological interpretations of Christ and the church. His review of major Christian interpreters of the Song throughout the history of the church is most valuable."--Richard S. Hess, Earl S. Kalland Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Denver Seminary

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"What Jaroslav Pelikan offers us [is] . . . a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts might remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating piece of work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections by a generous and faithful Christian scholar."--Brian E. Daley, SJ, Pro Ecclesia

"[Robert] Jenson's comments [in Ezekiel] represent, to my mind, the best of what the Brazos series can offer, namely, critical reflection on how textual claims can positively interact with dogmatic formulations. . . . The result of Jenson's study is a creative and rich Christian reading of Ezekiel that exemplifies the theological aims of the Brazos commentary series. Jenson's work should find a home on the desk of any pastor, minister, or lay person who is interested in serious theological engagement with Ezekiel. . . . [It] brings clarity to this often confusing and under-preached prophetic book."--Michael Jay Chan, Word & World

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"[Peter] Leithart does an eminently satisfying work of exposition [in 1 & 2 Kings], although his work engages age-old questions of exegetical method. . . . Leithart's work [is] stimulating in its unabashedly theological interpretive stance. Such a starting point for the exegetical task inquires differently of the text and renders fresh applications and observations. The two disciplines of biblical and theological studies can only benefit from cross-disciplinary engagement and, certainly, Leithart demonstrates that both disciplines can be used critically and in service of the Church."--Lissa M. Wray Beal, Toronto Journal of Theology

"For many Christians, Deuteronomy is another collection of arcane Jewish laws that have no bearing on church life in the least. . . . [Telford] Work's contribution is useful inasmuch as he actually helps readers think about just how Deuteronomy could be applied to the church. This is something many commentaries simply ignore. . . . This commentary will force readers to remember it is not enough to leave this wonderful revelation in its historical context."--Steven H. Sanchez, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

"The unique feature of the Brazos series is to have theologians provide exposition of specific biblical books. In this it follows a longstanding church tradition in which theology was drawn from scripture and was not alien to or estranged from it. [In Revelation, Joseph] Mangina . . . provides a thoughtful and competent analysis of this complex New Testament book. He certainly engages biblical scholarship, but his focus is appropriately on the fundamental theological perspective of Revelation, which he sees as a radically christological focus."--Donald Senior, CP, The Bible Today

"[Ephraim] Radner's commentary [on Leviticus] is full of stimulating insights from which biblical scholars will benefit. . . . Those who work hard will profit from the often-stimulating associations he finds between Leviticus and other parts of the Bible. Moreover, his commentary provides the first thorough synthesis of premodern Christian and Jewish interpretation of Leviticus."--Leigh Trevaskis, Review of Biblical Literature
