DAVID FIRTH’s commentary on 1 and 2 Samuel is in the Apollos Old Testament Commentary series. These volumes aim to help preach­ers, and combine expounding the text with exploring how they have been interpreted and received over the years (Apollos, £24.99 (£22.50); 978-1-84474-368-1).

The SCM Theological Comment­ary on the Bible now has Ezekiel among its volumes. By Robert Jenson, the book is aimed at preachers, teachers, and leaders of study groups, and helps them to read and interpret the OT for the 21st century (SCM Press, £19.99 (£17.99); 978-0-334-04330-0).

The Pillar New Testament Commentary is written for serious pastors and teachers of scripture, and concentrates on exegesis and exposition. The volume on The Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon is by Douglas Moo, and uses the New International Version (Eerdmans/Apollos, £26.99 (£24.30); 978-1-84474-341-4).

The Two Horizons Old Testament Commentary combines biblical studies and systematic theology. James McKeown’s work on Genesis reflects this in its two sections: the first explores the text, while the second picks theological themes relating to the teaching of Genesis, Genesis’s place in today’s theology, and its place in the Bible as a whole (Eerdmans, £12.99 (£11.70); 978-0-8028-2705-0).
