Item description for A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on Hosea (International Critical Commentary) by A. A. Macintosh...

Here Andrew Macintosh provides a major introduction, followed by translation and verse-by-verse commentary to Hosea. Incorporating up-to-date evidence from archaeology and the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as the insights of more recent major commentaries, he places particular emphasis on the work of the Rabbinic authorities and especially that of Ibn Janah. He reveals important new evidence concerning the meaning of Hosea's dialectical language to provide an indispensable reference for scholars, students and clergy.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on Hosea (International Critical Commentary)?

Very Technical, Helpful, but WAY TOO EXPENSIVE  Jul 21, 2007
I cannot believe they want $100 for this commentary on sale. It's about a $30 commentary in my opinion. After consulting this as a technical resource to solve a debate between two other commentaries on Hosea 1:2-9, I found no convincing argument in the passages he gives. I had to read it twice because it is so thick linguistically just to grasp what he was saying.

Having said that, he gives way more than the other commentaries I have on a passage. For example, on the issue of whether God spoke to Hosea or in Hosea to those around him, MacIntosh gives an entire page! For technical details like that he is very helpful.

On the meaning of the term 'prostitute' in Hosea 1:2 his argument is very technical, but may not take into account the typical historical setting.

He gives Hebrew phrases in Hebrew fonts (great if you know Hebrew), but if you have a bit of vision difficulty, you will find the characters hard to see because the Hebrew fonts are small, and the pointers impossible to read.

I would recommend that you borrow this commentary from a library rather than buy it. If it were reasonably priced, I would urge everyone who works seriously on Hosea to get a copy. Otherwise it's a four star book only because of the steep price.
 
Magnificent  Oct 16, 2001
A hundred years ago, the International Critical Commentary was synonymous with the best Biblical scholarship in the English language. Some of these old volumes still have value today. Here is a new volume in this great tradition, the result of 15 years' work by a great scholar. In this densely packed book, made even denser by the use of small print for the more technical sections, you will find nearly everything worth saying about this "minor" prophet. MacIntosh casts a powerful new light on the text of Hosea by showing that many of the hard to understand passages can be explained by realising that Hosea spoke a Northern dialect of Hebrew rather than the dialect of Jerusalem. At a stroke, he clears up difficulties that have perplexed his predecessors for generations and caused William Harper (author of an earlier ICC commentary on Hosea) to propose dozens of amendments to the text; MacIntosh shows that these are mostly unnecessary. However, he does find evidence of some editorial activity and explanatory glosses added by priestly circles in Jerusalem. In summary, this book is hard going, but those willing to persevere will find one of the very best commentaries ever written on a minor prophet, and a book that holds its place among the best commentaries on any Bible book.
