Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Joel

by James L. Crenshaw

Scripture scholar James L. Crenshaw captures the ominous, yet hopeful spirit of Joel's prophecy in his new translation and commentary. Joel's Prophecy has an unexpectedly familiar ring to it.

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Jonah

by Jack M. Sasson

Were Jonah's experiences true to the history of ancient Israel? Were they meant to be read comically, philosophically, allegorically, symbolically, or realistically?

These issues, and many more, are thoughtfully considered in this meticulously detailed an… Read more…

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Lamentations

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Lamentations

by Delbert R. Hillers

The poet is deep in mourning as a result of the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians in the sixth century b.c.e. He looks to Israel’s own sins to explain the catastrophe, and yet he recites poignant examples of Israel’s suffering in wonderi… Read more…

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Letter of James

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Letter of James

by Luke Timothy Johnson

The Letter of James is one of the most significant, yet generally overlooked, New Testament books. Because Martin Luther, leader of the Protestant Reformation, disliked this letter for its emphasis on good deeds, the book has come to be viewed as being in opposition to Paul’s letters, which emphasize faith in God. To correct these and other misperceptions … Read more…
