4 Stars Out Of 5
THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH by J.A. Thompson
December 5, 2014
This commentary provides a scholarly but yet very readable commentary on Jeremiah. As is the pattern in
the NICOT series, the scholarly discussions concerning the Hebrew and Aramaic are confined to the footnotes at the bottom of each page along with other footnotes on the text, history, and archaeology. A significant part
of this commentary is the 136 pages dedicated to the introduction to Jeremiah providing much information
on these same topics.
There are other deeper commentaries on Jeremiah written by Bright and Holladay, but this commentary
by Thompson will not bog the reader down in details. For true biblical scholars, there are more
technical commentaries out there on Jeremiah, but for those of us who are serious students but do not have the
qualifying scholarly abilities, this is as good as it gets.
