Reviews - What do customers think about JPS Bible Commentary on Jonah?

Terrific commentary, but a bit expensive  Oct 16, 2000
Prof. Simon's new commentary on Jonah contains the complete Hebrew text, the JPS's new English translation, and an extensive original commentary that illuminates the text like a 1000 watt searchlight. On average, each four or five lines of text gets a full page of explanation and commentary, so every subject gets covered in detail.

He makes use of traditional rabbinic commentaries, and the Mishna, Midrash and Talmud. But it doesn't end here: The commentary goes on to make good use of literary analysis and comparative Semitics; intertextual commentary relating each book to other biblical books, and evidence from modern archaeological, discoveries.
