"An excellent commentary that provides all the aids to understanding the biblical text for which the reader might wish. . . The author's treatment of the problems literary, historical, and theological is well informed, fair, and judicious. He demonstrates wide knowledge and fine scholarly judgment."
"Among the excellent major commentaries . . . evangelicals will look first to Leslie C. Allen's Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah."
"Allen should be commended highly for his neat and concise organization of the complex information on these four books of the Minor Prophets."
"Allen's work is very good, and his commentary should be read by all serious students of these prophets."
