One of the finer commentaries in the set, Tremper Longman has this to say about it: "This is one of the best recent commentaries on the minor prophets. It is a must-buy for everyone who is preaching on these books. It is intelligently conservative and emphasizes theology without ignoring the other aspects of the text. Shows how the prophets operated in a tradition going back to the covenant curses of the Pentateuch."
