The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Song of Songs, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible. "Griffiths provides a wonderful commentary on the New Vulgate text of the Song of Songs. Readers will benefit from his introduction defending the value of the study of translations, his close study of the translation he has chosen, and his theological interpretations of Christ and the church. His review of major Christian interpreters of the Song throughout the history of the church is most valuable."-- Richard S. Hess, Earl S. Kalland Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Denver Seminary Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible "What Jaroslav Pelikan offers us [is] . . . a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts might remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating piece of work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections by a generous and faithful Christian scholar."-- Brian E. Daley, SJ, Pro Ecclesia "[Robert] Jenson's comments [in Ezekiel] represent, to my mind, the best of what the Brazos series can offer, namely, critical reflection on how textual claims can positively interact with dogmatic formulations. . . . The result of Jenson's study is a creative and rich Christian reading of Ezekiel that exemplifies the theological aims of the Brazos commentary series. Jenson's work should find a home on the desk of any pastor, minister, or lay person who is interested in serious theological engagement with Ezekiel. . . . [It] brings clarity to this often confusing and under-preached prophetic book."-- Michael Jay Chan, Word & World General editor: R. R. Reno (Creighton University) Series editors: Robert W. Jenson (Center of Theological Inquiry) Robert Louis Wilken (University of Virginia) Ephraim Radner (Wycliffe College, University of Toronto) Michael Root (Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary) George Sumner (Wycliffe College, University of Toronto)
