5.0 out of 5 stars Worth your money 30 Jan 2006
By honestseeker - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Commentary I've Ever Read 15 Feb 2013
By David Cochran - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is by far the best commentary I've ever read. I was a Bible student and read through dozens of different commentaries by who knows how many authors and this is the one that stands out to me. I don't know why it costs so much right now. I'd love to say it's worth the money, but $700 bucks for a commentary is probably not your cup of tea unless you have the money to blow. If you do, blow it on this. Because of this commentary, the minor prophets came alive to me for the first time. Before I read them I had the typical view of the minor prophets as doom and gloom, and this commentary opened my eyes to the message of grace that is the backdrop to the message for all the minor prophets. This is crucial to understanding how God really views sin, condemnation, and punishment. They are never without a message of Grace and should not be preached as though they were. I wish it were cheaper so more people could partake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying 1 May 2013
By Mike White - Published on
I recently preached through and wrote a seminary paper on Jonah. I found this commentary to be very helpful and concise. I have not read anything outside of Jonah but I do feel that the introductory material was a little skimpy (about 10 pages) and did not hit all the major issues with enough detail. Genre, a massive issue for the book with huge implications for interpretation and exposition, was only touched on for 2 paragraphs. Baldwin seems to take a parabolic rather than historical view.

As a poor seminoid, this is the most expensive single volume I have ever owned. I guess for $400 bucks I was expecting it to preach my sermons for me! Regardless, I can only speak for Jonah but McComisky does appear to be one of the most comprehensive volumes on the Minor Prophets you can find, a must-have for a serious student of the Twelve. Were it not so expensive, I would give it 5 stars.

I've only read the commentaries on a couple of minor prophets in this book, but I assume the rest of the commentaries follow suit..

I don't know Hebrew, so I can't comment on the comments on the Hebrew.

After an introduction to each minor prophet with a discussion on the author, date, theme, etc., the commentator's translation of the book is shown in parallel with the NASB. From there the commentary is divided in two sections which run in parallel: one section with translator's notes and discussions of the Hebrew words and tenses, and one section which is comparable to a "traditional" commentary with references to other verses, information on the culture and context, literary structure, pastor's notes, etc.

I'm very happy with this book and am looking forward to learning Hebrew, and am looking forward to understanding the commentary on the original language! I recommend this to anyone interested in the Word of God who doesn't mind carrying heavy books.

By Cale Judd - Published on
This is not a review of the text but of the publisher's work in assembling the one-volume edition of this commentary. I ordered the one-volume edition, but returned it due to what I consider a publisher's defect. Baker did not leave sufficient space in the gutter margins for such a thick volume, with the unhappy result that I found I had to lean from side to side when reading the text. It was a great disappointment because the text of the commentary had been highly recommended to me.
