Also mentioned in connection with my post on Hosea is the commentary edited by Thomas McComiskey. The commentary on Joel in this volume was written by the late Raymond Dillard. I do not agree with Dillard's conclusions regarding the date of the book (He suggests a post-exilic date in the late fifth to mid sixth century) or the interpretation of the locust plague in chapter 1 (He argues that it is a description of a literal locust plague), but, nevertheless, his commentary is very useful, especially on the details of the Hebrew text.

Separate, but parallel, textual and expositional comments. Quality of commentary on each book will vary according to the contributor. Evangelical. [Full Review]
