Reviews - What do customers think about Holman Old Testament Commentary - Jeremiah, Lamentations?
Lamenting Lamentations Nov 10, 2007
I purchased this book specifically to teach through Lamentations, and I was sorely disappointed. Only 23 pages are devoted to Lamentations, and the commentary is superficial and unorganized. One of the key characteristics of Lamentations is its acrostic nature, but the author doesn't even mention this except as an aside in the middle of the discussion. The author includes a couple of historical anecdotes to make the book "relevant" to modern life, but their relevance to the actual text of Lamentations is questionable at best.
I have not yet read the Jeremiah commentary, but if you are looking for help with Lamentations specifically, as I was, look elsewhere.
