Item description for Joel: A New Translation with Notes (Anchor Bible) by James Crenshaw...

Scripture Scholar James L. CrenshawCaptures The Ominous, Yet Hopeful Spirit Of Joel'sProphecy In His New Translation AndCommentary.

Joel's Prophecy has an unexpectedly familiarring to it. The biblical book of Joel is relevant toour late-twentieth-century world because itconfronts an age when people tolerated almost anything,did not want someone telling them how to livetheir lives, and had difficulty distinguishing rightfrom wrong. It was at once a time ofself-indulgence and a time of spiritual decay. The economic andpolitical disparity of the day, combined withwidespread social injustice and deviant religiouspractices, brought about God's judgment on his chosenpeople, the judahites. Pleading the litany of sinsin Joel is like reading the newspaper, things havenot changed much in 2,500 years. Leading Scripturescholar James L. Crenshaw's fresh translation ofthe biblical prophecy of Joel combines the latestresearch into Hebrew language and literature withdown-to-earth insights into how Joel's words relateto the modern world. Drawing upon a thoroughanalysis of the book's grammar and philology, literaryforms and context, religious and social situation,and historical setting, Crenshaw offers the mostinformed and up-to-date commentary available. Forthose who want to read and understand Joel, thisbook is indispensable.

Reviews - What do customers think about Joel: A New Translation with Notes (Anchor Bible)?

A very good supplementary commentary  Feb 10, 2004
This translation and commentary on Joel by James Crenshaw is a worthy addition to the Anchor Bible series, and a supplementary text to a course I'm currently teaching on the Minor Prophets. While some of the material presented will be beyond the basic student of the Bible (especially with reference to nuances in the Hebrew language) this will not detract from the book's overall value.

Joel is a difficult book with a dark tone. Crenshaw's notes shed some welcome light.

A Great Philologically Liberal Commentary  Oct 4, 2000
I am using this book as a supplement as I translate the book of Joel with a Professor at the University of Missouri. For purposes such as this it is an excellent reference. However, it does not beat supplementary translations in accuracy. Instead, Crenshaw is writing a commentary as he translates. The purpose is two-fold. I only mean that the commentary is only great within the confines of Crenshaw's translation. Unless you are an exhaustive Key-Word scholar, do not purchase this unless you are familiar with biblical Hebrew. It is not a commentary based upon the English text. It is a commentary based upon Crenshaw's rendering of the Masoretic text.
