Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world." (Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary)

"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible." (Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia)

"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes." (D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)

"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries." (Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary)

About the Author

The late R. Alan Cole was lecturer in Old Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, and Trinity Theological College, Singapore. He wrote the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series volumes Mark and Galatians.

26 of 26 people found the following review helpful By David Kilpatrick on April 25, 2011
Format: Paperback
First off, this commentary is from 1973, not 2008 as the date on Amazon says. A quick click on the "Read Me" button will verify the copyright date. All Tyndale OT commentaries are listed as "2008" for some reason (possibly reflecting the most recent printing with new cover styles?).

I read this commentary in its entirety about 20 years ago, and over the years have used it as a reference. It is a fine, helpful, though short (by today's standards) commentary from a conservative perspective.

The reason I write this review, however, is to provide an alternative perspective to the January 5, 2005 review of this commentary above that states:
"Though this volume is in the Tyndale series, don't mistake it for a conservative commentary. It has all the signs of liberal conclusions drawn by rationalist scholarship."

This is a most unfortunate assessment, and it is not accurate. Cole's commentary is quite consistent with the rest of the Tyndale series. He accepts the historicity of the events of the Book of Exodus, and pretty much only conservative scholars do that. The Jan 2005 reviewer must not be aware that conservative scholars recognize that dating the Exodus (either about 1440 BC or about 1250 BC) is a very tricky and uncertain endeavor. Conservative scholars are divided on this issue, and few would state their case with any certainty. I suspect this reviewer takes issue with the fact that 1 Kings 6:1 refers to the time from the Exodus to the building of the temple as 480 years. But even conservatives recognize that this could be either a precise date or a rounded figure representing 12 generations. The Bible uses rounding, just like other literature - that's how language often works.

19 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Parr on January 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
Though this volume is in the Tyndale series, don't mistake it for a conservative commentary. It has all the signs of liberal conclusions drawn by rationalist scholarship. Though Cole admits the numbers in the Bible lead to 1446 as the date of the Exodus, he rejects this date and opts for the reign of Raamses II (1290-1224) (see p. 42). Furthermore, he thinks that the "sea of reeds" the children of Israel crossed was dried overnight by an east wind, thus being only a few inches deep (see pp. 121-122). Of course, he fails to mention how the Egyptians could have drowned in a few inches of water.

In the above-mentioned instances, the commentary is more an exposition of Cole's preconcieved notions than of the text of Scripture. Perhaps other parts are better, but the commentary's primary value lies in its presentation of alternate views, and thus it provides discernment practice.
