While many biblical handbooks are on the market, the new Baker Academic Old Testament Handbooks are, arguably, the best available. This is due undoubtedly to their comprehensive approach a firm understanding of their audience. Intended for advanced undergraduate students, seminary students, and pastors, these handbooks provide a wealth of information while also preparing the reader for further study. This is achieved by providing three essential components. First, matters of introduction, authorship, date, etc, are outlined. Second, an exposition of the book is given. Finally, the authors lay out the interpretive conclusions they have come into about their books. In the present volume Handbook on the Wisdom Books and Psalms Daniel Estes does an excellent job of holding to this format and elucidating the background, contents, and interpretation of Job, Ecclesiastes, the Song of Solomon, Proverbs, and the Psalms. Within his given format Estes approaches the introductory mattes straightforwardly, while slightly tweaking his expositional format. He provides full treatments of Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon, but changes slightly the presentation of the Psalms and of Proverbs. In Psalms he identifies ten types of psalms and treats each one according to its form and typical contents. Similarly in Proverbs, Estes identifies topics and synthesizes them into a coherent exposition on the books contents. Estes Interpretations are firmly rooted and derived from his interaction with scholarship. This interaction is made accessible to the reader by a number of direct interactions with other scholar's writings, and by a succinct but comprehensive bibliography. For those teaching courses on the Poetic literature of the OT, there is no better resource for orienting your students, or even yourself. The wealth of information provided here is matched only by the accessibility of the handbook's format and the excellence of its composition.
The prophetic books of the Bible contain some of the most difficult passages in the entire Old Testament and can prove especially confusing for those new to this corpus. This book offers a thorough and insightful introduction for the beginning student of the Old Testament prophetic literature. Robert Chisholm guides students through the important and often complex writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Minor Prophets. Rather than attempting to provide a detailed verse-by-verse commentary, the handbook focuses on the prevailing themes and central messages of the prophetic books. Chisholm begins each chapter with a brief analysis of the social and historical setting of the book under discussion. As he works through each of the writings, Chisholm describes the structure, content, and important concepts found therein. Without becoming mired in overly technical issues or academic jargon, Chisholm considers critical issues whenever they are important for the interpretation of a particular passage. In general, however, he focuses more broadly on the theological themes that characterize the work as a whole. In each case, he considers how the message of the prophets would have been heard in their respective historical communities and the continuing importance of the prophets for contemporary study.

It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary.The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is 'profitable for teaching' (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should 'pay close attention to...your teaching' (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should 'be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict' (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology.Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarizes the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher.
