I Have Been Waiting For This!

Announcing the Festschrift for Richard Gaffin! It is edited by two very good friends of mine at WTS, Lane Tipton and Jeff Waddington. It is a veritable feast of biblical-theological reflections. You can see its table of contents here.

    We also have a website dedicated to Dr. Gaffin that includes additional essays and remembrances that are not included in the festschrift. The address is:

    Sorry, I don’t have your email, but I have an off topic question. Forgive me in advance. Do you have any good recommendations on commentaries related to Deborah and Barak? I have a friend completing a research paper on the complementarian position concerning Deborah, and I thought you might know of some good resources to check out.

    No problem, A.

    Block, Younger, Davis, Niditch (for adversarial fodder!), Boling, Fausset, and Keil/Delitzsch are the essential commentaries nowadays (if you can pick up Burney somewhere, you might find him helpful). Also, Lindars/Mayes is a major effort on Judges 1-5. Look carefully through Niditch’s bibliography for modern treatments (though she is EXTREMELY slanted towards the liberal side of things). See also Block, footnote 296, p. 211 for state of scholarship bibliography on the Song of Deborah. M. Bal has written on this topic in his book entitled Murder and Difference: Gender, Genre, and Scholarship on Sisera’s Death. You really cannot do any better than to read all the footnotes in Block’s commentary.
