Product description

Review

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."--Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary

"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."--Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."--D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."--Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

From the Publisher

General Editors: D J Wiseman (Old Testament) and Leon Morris
(New Testament). A series of thorough commentaries, ideal for study and
devotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed to bring me up to speed ... 21 May 2017

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Exactly what I needed to bring me up to speed. A brief and to the point summary/commentary on the books of Habakkuk and Zephaniah.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet. 29 Mar. 2014
By A. Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A decent commentary for these three Minor Prophets. I enjoyed the commentary on Habakkuk the most, while I found Nahum to be somewhat lacking. Overall it is terse, though has moments of elucidation that I found enlightening. Worth having on the shelf. This is the first of the Tynsdale OT Commentary Series I have read, it has definitely encouraged me to look at others in the series

4.0 out of 5 stars Brief but no better commentary at this level 19 Oct. 2006
By Jeremy Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Baker's commentary is very brief. This would be an excellent guide for a Bible study leader or pastor without much training in biblical studies. For more detailed exegesis, I recommend O. Palmer Robertson's NICOT or Waylon Bailey's NAC. This would provide a nice supplement to those volumes.

Baker takes a conservative, evangelical approach to these three minor prophets, selecting what he considers to be the most important information for the basic interpretation of the books. He defends the unity of each book, along with the traditionally ascribed authorship, dating all three books to the traditional period of the 7th century.

Baker is broadly Wesleyan in his theology, and I am more Reformed, but I did not find much in this commentary that I disagreed with theologically. At most I would have worded things slightly differently. Baker thus tdoes well at capturing the theological message of these books without trying to score points for his particular viewpoint. He simply discusses what the text is saying. He has room for enough linguistic, textual, and background issues to show the general sense of what the text is saying, even if he does not always give full details on matters that have a smaller effect on the overall message. A more detailed commentary would be required for that.

I know of no work at this level that does as good a job, even if it turns out to be not even as detailed as a number of other volumes in the Tyndale series, even the other minor prophets volumes. I would not prefer to have to teach these books with just Baker's commentary, and there are a lot of good commentaries on these books, but this is one of the ones I want on my shelf. This may well be the lowest price-to-information ratio among the evangelical commentaries.
