Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Jeremiah (New International Commentary on the Old Testament)?
Very eye-opening, but a little repetitive May 12, 2007
This was the first time I have done a thorough reading of the Book of Jeremiah and J.A. Thompson's book was very informative. One got a true sense of what the text was saying and when it occurred, but since the pattern of the Biblical book was pretty much on a singuglar topic, J.A. Thompson's work became repetitious. One came to expect what was going to happen next in response to who did what. Thonpson truly stayed within the bounds of the text, only dealing with that which was pertinent, yet on one or two occassions greater application could have been drawn.
A Complete Resource Oct 15, 2005
Thompson's commentary is a beautiful combination of scholarship and devotion. Of the commentaries and study guides I have used in preparing sermons on Jeremiah, this has been the richest source of help. I appreciate this series of commentaries for its evangelical commitments as well as its willingness to deal with most of the critical issues surrounding each book, and Thompson handles those issues deftly while keeping an eye on the pastoral angle of Jeremiah. In my opinion, this is a "must have" for the serious pastor or student working their way through Jeremiah.
Usable, thorough and detailed without being overly technical Jun 22, 1999
I used this commentary as a resource to lead a Bible school course on Jeremiah. It was the most useful of all the works I consulted, and yielded many valuable insights.
