This is a great commentary. I’ve found the BST series to excellent to prep for leading Bible studies in adult Sunday school, but this particular commentary especially opened my eyes to how much God is teaching us through through the book of Jonah and inspired several sermons that resonated deeply with my congregation.
Very long for the BST series, including plenty of discussion of the literary genre of Jonah, and a number of excursuses on word studies and themes. A very worthwhile resource for preachers preparing to work through Jonah, but may be a little technical and long-winded for usual readers of the BST series. [Full Review]
Good solid addition to the Bible Speaks Today series. Clear explanation of text both thinking of it historically and literary. Recommended for those just looking to have a help in understanding the book of Jonah
