True Scholarship

Too often commentaries are released that are inadequate, not able to cover the breadth of Scripture. Well, thanks to Eisenbrauns, the age of wimpy commentaries is over! Take a gander at this!

To further this end, we are introducing a major new commentary series, Major Studies on Minor Biblical Books. The introductory volume, available now, is the biblical book of Obadiah, verse 1. This 500 page volume, lavishly illustrated with extensive charts and full color plates, concentrates on the overlooked importance of verse 1 in the canonical process and its implications for the entire biblical corpus, indeed for all theological undertakings. U. Will B. Bore, ed. for the series, expresses the purpose of the series very clearly, "We feel that in an age of inclusiveness and pluralism, it is only fair to examine the importance of these frequently overlooked biblical books. We are delighted that Eisenbrauns has agreed to publish this milestone in biblical studies."

Work on Volume II has already begun, which will include a whopping 479 pages on Obadiah 1:2.

Joseph Conrad's view of his contemporary scenario was quite justified and objective. He rejected the imperialistic oppression on one hand and should sympathy to the poor people, who was voice was silenced by the so-called light bearers of Europe. In no way he can be termed as a Racist or biased writer. We also observe that in the novel he has appreciated those people, who represent the sane and humane forces of the world. In his final analysis the evil doers like Kurtz comprehands the wrechedness of their lives. Prof. Shahid Siddiqui, Govt. Murray College, Sialkot. Pakistan.
