This commentary is written in a very technical format employing Hebrew and Greek (LXX). It discusses the historical critical issues, historic reconstruction, and comparative studies. Due to the size of the secondary redaction in Nahum and Habakkuk, it is dealt with in brief form. Form and rhetorical redaction is also touched upon occasionally. The major parts are textual critism and philology.

About the Old Testament Library Series:
The Old Testament Library is one of the most respected commentary series produced in the last 50 years. As with any series that reaches this level of respectability, it is comprehensive in scope while acknowledging that it is not exhaustive. Introductory matters cover historical concerns, cultural issues, the reception of the text, the integrity of the text, and other interpretive issues.

Each commentary provides a verse-by-verse analysis of critical exegetical matters that are then synthesized into a progressively building understanding of the text and interpretation. This includes analysis of problems in history, word meaning, syntactical and grammatical issues, text history, and many other exegetically relevant issues. Nevertheless, despite the breadth of their scope, volumes in the series remain relatively compact in comparison to series who share its aims and scope.
