Garrett, Duane A.; House, Paul R. Song of Songs, Lamentations. WBC. Thomas Nelson, 2004.
Zach Olson Zach Olson May 19, 2022
Easily the best commentary on Lamentations, and it seems like everyone agrees on this. Quite insightful. I have not used it for Son of Songs, but I always thoroughly enjoy Duane Garrett's work.

This three-volume commentary on the Psalms is spectacular. I thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated the helpful insights he provides on how to exegete and exposit each Psalm.

This three-volume commentary on the Psalms is spectacular. He provides helpful insights on how to exegete and exposit each individual Psalm. I highly recommend this for the preacher and teacher.
Harmon, Matthew S. Galatians. EBTC. Lexham Press, 2021.

I thoroughly enjoyed this commentary on Galatians. Harmon really brings the motifs found in Isaiah out in his commentary throughout. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to study Galatians. He even has a themes section in the book to trace how they unfold in Paul's argument.

McGrath, Alister E. Christian Theology: An Introduction. Wiley-Blackwell, 2006.

My professor assigned this book for my Systematic Theology class, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. McGrath helps someone to digest the historical and cultural contexts for how the doctrine has developed over the previous 2000 years.
Hellerman, Joseph H. Köstenberger, Andreas J.; Yarbrough, Robert W. eds. Philippians. EGGNT. B&H Academic, 2015.

Hellerman illustrates so well Paul's letter to the Philippians. His exegesis is remarkably well done and provides so much good insight. He brings the letter alive.
Harmon, Matthew S. Philippians: A Mentor Commentary. Ment. Mentor, 2015.

This commentary was so effective for my study in Philippians. It provides wonderful pastoral insights and illuminates what Paul is saying so well. Wonderful exegesis is within this commentary.
Huey, F. B. Jeremiah, Lamentations. NAC. Broadman & Holman, 1993.
Zach Olson Zach Olson February 10, 2021
I did enjoy this commentary while going through Lamentations. I did not use it for Jeremiah, so keep that in mind for my review. It did feel a bit like Lamentations was an aside in comparison to his commentary on Jeremiah. It did raise some helpful insights and elements helpful for sermon content in Lamentations.

I used this for class, and I found it to be quite remarkably helpful in understanding the wonderful poetry in this book. Lamentations oftentimes feels like an aside for biblical commentators, but this commentary does not do this such thing.
