4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific commentary, but a bit expensive 16 Oct 2000
By R. Kaiser - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and good 21 Jan 2013
By J. Harold Alomia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Simon's insight in the book of Jonah are very good and profound. He draws from the text and also combines with Jewish tradition what I believe to be a good solid commentary with his particular slant. Small, concise, deep, and well written.
