The Hermeneia Commentary Series is a modern critical and scholarly approach to the scriptures. This volume on the Song of Songs by Roland Murphy begins with an introductory section which discusses the authorship, date, authenticity, history of interpretation, and contents of the book. The commentary itself is an in-depth analysis of the text based on linguistic and historic research. A good, scholarly volume. ^ ^^ ^
Murphy received his doctorate in theology at the Catholic University of America, and was professor there, first in Semitic Language and then in Old Testament. Since 1971 he has been at the Duke University Divinity School, where he is George Washington Ivey Professor of Biblical Studies.
