Format: Hardcover
This three-volume set is a tremendous work of scholarship on the book of Jeremiah. Lundbom focuses on rhetorical criticism and his literary analysis shows careful consideration and exegetical attentiveness to rhetorical artistry. It speaks much of Lundbom's skill that he often takes
a different line from the critical consensus and makes his own point to provide what he regards as a more suitable solution, however, in a thoroughly conventional vein. He is pointedly dismissive of certain critical positions resembling Deuteronomistic redactions in later times (e.g. the "rolling corpus" theory of McKane [ICC,1986&1996]) that he finds
untenable. In his view, material in the book of Jeremiah is almost all attributable to Jeremiah or Baruch. Lundbom objects the view that the book
of Jeremiah is in great disarray, out of chronological sequence and without a coherent plan. On the contrary, he pleads for a certain chronological order with only a couple of possible exceptions. Delimiting
literary units he usually refers to the Hebrew section markers setumah and
petuchah in the MT. Lundbom's translation is conservative in as much as he
tries to translate the MT as it stands without resorting to emendation. He
generally prefers the MT reading to the LXX reading, but this is due to his view that the LXX has suffered through haplography, homoeoteleuton and
homoeoarcton. He painstakingly elaborates on this point, but fails to offer more persuasive theories for flawed variants of the LXX. Attached to
the volumes are bibliographies, indices and helpful appendices. This commentary as a whole is a welcome contribution to the interpretation of the book of Jeremiah and deserves wide recognition.
