Item description for Hosea, Joel: An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture (New American Commentary #19) by Duane A. Garrett & Paul Ferris...
Overview In Hosea and Joel the implement employed to capture the attention and hearts of God's people is the symbol. In Joel it is the locust, a symbol of impending destruction. In Hosea the prophet himself - and his scorned but constant love - dramatically portrays God's message of grace and his call to repent.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New American Commentary Volume 19A - Hosea-Joel?
Best commentary on Joel May 9, 2008
After preaching through Joel, I feel like my experience with commentaries may be helpful here. This was the clearest, most accessible, most helpful commentary on the book I've seen. I also used Hubbard (TOTC), Dillard (The Minor Prophets), and Stuart (Word). Of these Stuart was next most helpful, but Garrett was the clear winner.
The thing that stands out most is the clear-headed reasoning in the conclusions on a book where there is a great amount of disagreement. The excursus on interpreting prophecy attached to chapter 4 (ch. 3 in the BHS) is well worth reading for anyone preaching on ANY prophetic book.
If you're preaching on Joel, this commentary is the best place to start.
Insightful & Comprehensive Aug 6, 2006
The other commentaries in the NAC series are good or at least adequate, but Garrett's is phenomenal -- by far the best of the NAC commentaries I've used. I highly recommend it.
Garrett is a superb writer and theologian. He provides a comprehensive treatment of Hosea and Joel, fairly balancing technical detail with pastoral application. Though the NIV text is used (as it is throughout the NAC series), Garrett frequently critiques and corrects the NIV with his own translations. The Hebrew text is mostly limited to footnotes, so those without Hebrew language skills have no difficulty following him.
