Item description for Theological Bible Commentary by Gail R. O'Day & David L. Petersen...
Overview Most one-volume Bible commentaries focus on standard scholarly issues, answering questions such as who wrote the book, who was addressed, and how the book is structured. In contrast, this is the first one-volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: What does each biblical book say about God? How does the book describe God and portray Gods actions? Who is God in these biblical books?

In contrast, this is the first one-volume commentary to emphasize theological questions: what does each biblical book say about God? how does the book describe God and portray God's actions? and who is God in these biblical books? This volume meets the need for a resource that puts the best of scholarship in conversation with the theological claims of the biblical text.

Great One-Volume Guide to the Bible's Theology Feb 8, 2010
This resource seems underrated to me. I don't know if any other one-volume commentary that focuses on the THEOLOGY of the Bible - not source criticism and the like. Source criticism is respected by the authors of this commentary (they are not approaching the text as fundamentalists), but the focus is always theology. Every entry that I have read so far has been written very well. The short essays on each book of the Bible move quickly to the heart of the book's theology. I have been impressed by the interesting and effective syntheses of each biblical book. For each text, a short overview of the theology of the work in question is given, followed by a section-by-section commentary on the text. For a single volume work that is so readable, this commentary is excellent.
