Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This scholarly yet accessible commentary in the ``Old Testament Library'' series gives a clear assessment of literary, linguistic, and historical backgrounds to these three prophetic books. Textual notes, selected bibliography, introductions, and translations support the commentary. Roberts takes previous scholarship into consideration and develops his own interpretations. Recommended for academic and seminary libraries, which will probably want a standing order for the entire series.
