An Oustanding Contribution. . . 9 Feb. 2004
By David Zampino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
. . .to the Anchor Bible series and to serious study of Amos. I have been more than impressed with the Anchor Bible commentaries on the Minor Prophets and have included several, including this one, in a current class I'm teaching in the Minor Prophets. Of all these texts, Amos stands out as a masterpiece of modern, sensible Biblical scholarship.
Nowhere else have I seen such attention to detail. Nowhere else have I seen such in-depth Hebrew word studies (frankly, far beyond my own comprehension!) Never before have I gained such insights into a book I've read many times.
I highly recommend this volume for all serious students of the Minor Prophets -- whether one can read Hebrew or not.
The section of photographs is also a nice added touch.

Worth every penny 27 Sept. 2011
By Rupricht - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly agree with David Zampino's review on this. If you need to study Amos in detail this is well worth the money. You may not agree with all points - that's a given in practically any commentary - but it's so comprehensive and detailed that you'll be reluctant to turn elsewhere (which, of course, you should).

I've got Feinberg, McComiskey, Stuart, Smith, Hubbard, and a handful of others, but this is work is incredible.

Please note: I have not read it all, but the sections I have read are rich with detail. Alternatives are Stuart (WBC) or McComiskey. If you're looking for an easier read I recommend Motyer in the BST series - wonderful insights.

rich in detail 21 July 2012
By Daryl Sage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am reading this commentary and am on page 600. The book is rich in detail and I am learning alot about the biblical period in the 8th century BCE. No detail seems too small to mention. I love the Anchor Bible Series. The comprehensiveness of this volume reminds me of Milgrom's Leviticus. I read the Anchor Bible commentaries from cover to cover and , as you can imagine, I spend a lot of time finishing each volume. But I not only read them for edification but for devotion as well. There is so much in these volumes. I am in the Old Testament now and have been for many years but plan on reading the New Testament volumes as well. Well worth the cost.

The Book and the cover 20 Sept. 2011
By Grace Y. Shum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book arrived in due time. The condition of the book is very good, no scratch, no tear and no marking found inside the book.However, i expected the book will look like the same as it was shown in the amazon list, that the front cover should have a Pic of a lion. A little bit disappointed but still recommend this company.
