Worth your money Jan 31, 2006
McComiskey's 3-volume set on the "minor prophets" is outstanding, the best I have read. The exegesis is carefully done within the historical context and with a high view of biblical inspiration. The insights offered are rich, bringing out the many wonderful word-plays that the English reader misses. All three of these volumes are well worth their price.
Good! Dec 4, 2005
It is a great tool for a study in minor prophets. Only complaint about this edition it have too much blank spaces on pages. Are they left for study notes? Or product dimensions are chosen too big?
Review of The Minor Prophets, Vol. 1 Oct 5, 2005
I would have given the book a 5-start rating based on the sections on Hosea and Joel, but the expository commentary on Amos was not as good. Many references were made to "types of Christ" and also to passages in the New Testament at the expense of explaining the material at hand within the cultural context and the historical setting. On the other hand, the sections on Hosea and Joel were outstanding and extremely helpful in preparing a Sunday school lesson. I would buy this book again for the sections on Hosea and Joel (it is still a good bargain) and make sure to find another informative commentary on Amos.
The Minor Prophets Dec 24, 1999
The Minor Prophets succesfully meets the expository and exegetical needs of students of the minor prophets. The amount of lexical and syntactial analyses of the Hebrew text are measured appropriately and do not dominate the exegetical portion of the commentary. Students of the original languages are aided by the scholars' thorough research; still, the authors leave enough room for readers to deal on their own with the important grammatical issues which surround the text. Where there are uncertainties as to the meaning of a particular word, such is clearly stated. Thankfully, several solutions are proposed nonetheless. Furthermore, sufficient attention is given to historical and cultural issues, issues which may influence one's interpretation of the text. Overall, the commentary is very well-written, easily read, and is sure to be of great benefit to any student of the Old Testament.
A great Commentary that takes The Word of God seriously Jul 9, 1999
The commentary is devided in two sections on every text. 1)the exegetical part with the crux interpretum, then 2) the expository part.
I think this is a great way of writing a commentary because not all pastors and preachers know hebrew and if u don't a very exegetical commentary is rather booring to read. This commentary is great to read even if u don't know a word of hebrew. The exegetical part are good and explores the text very good. It gives you a feeling of the hebrew language and increase your understanding of the text.
McComiskey has really succeded in making the minor prophets understandable and he is almost narrative in his apporach to the minor prophets.
it is truly a great commentary and I know I will use it a great deal in my ministry and therefor I will strongly recommend it!
