Publishers Description
Hosea, volume 24 in the Anchor Bible series of new, book-by-book translations of the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha is a collaboration by world-renowned scholars Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman. The authors' treatment of Hosea consists of: Introduction: A review and rethinking of Hosea research that offers a fascinating interpretation of the prophet's life and work. Translation: Based on one of the oldest of prophetic writings, this new translation of Hosea is unique insofar as the literary integrity of the text is scrupulously adhered to. Notes: For both scholar and general reader there is cultural and linguistic information which sets each passage within the sociohistoric context of eighth century B.C.E. Hebrew vocabulary, syntax, and poetic language are examined in an effort to confront one of the most obscure sections of biblical literature. Illustrations: Eight pages of photographs will take the reader through the ancient days of the Middle Bronze Age into the wonders of the Iron Age in which Hosea lived.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hosea (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

Thorough Work on Hosea  Apr 19, 2001
These two prominet OT scholars colloborate on this significant prophet. As Jesus and Peter quote from this book prominently in the NT, this book is key. (Hosea 2,6; 1 Pt. 2)

They provide a very accurate and detailed philogical work which will likely be too much for even the most adamant layperson. The work really requires a working knowledge of the Hebrew to appreciate its depth of research and scholarship.

This was used as one of the textbooks for my sem class in Hosea which we translated each word from Hebrew. Although I don't buy every translation of this commentary, this overall is excellent and of great usefulness to the student of the text.

I think that some of the textual work is odd.  Feb 11, 1998
I think that some of the textual work, such as that on Hosea 4:15 and 8:2 is odd. It goes to some lengths to keep the text together. In upholding the integrity of the text, the commentary does some problematic things to it.
