4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dwight Gingrich on May 30, 2013
Format: Paperback
SUMMARY: This volume in the New International Biblical Commentary series is a very welcome work. It appears to be one of the most useful exegetical commentaries on Jeremiah and Lamentations for people who do not read Hebrew. Its main competitor in this regard may be the new 2013 volume by Hetty Lalleman in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries series Jeremiah and Lamentations (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries), which contains less exegetical detail but a more accessible format than this volume by Longman. Judging by reviews, other introductory-level Jeremiah commentaries worth considering include the NIVAC volume by Andrew Dearman (Longman gives him 4/5 stars) and the updated 2010 Expositor's Bible Commentary Jeremiah-Ezekiel volume.

PURPOSE OF THIS REVIEW: I have scanned several parts of this commentary by Longman and would like to give my impressions. I also own commentaries on Jeremiah and Lamentations by Lalleman (TOTC), Andrew Dearman (NIVAC), Thompson (NICOT), and Kidner (BST), as well as the old TCOT volume by Harrison. I have not preached through Jeremiah or read any of the above commentaries in depth. However, I have been scanning them in order to select the best of the bunch to give to a friend as a gift. I am looking for a commentary that will be a good first and only commentary for someone who does not know biblical languages (that includes me). Thompson is too long for my purposes (and a little dated); Kidner and Harrison are both too old and stilted in their language; Dearman is helpful but focused more on application (I need to examine him more closely).

This is an excellent commentary. It is clear and concise and very easy to understand. It gives such good insight into the book of Jeremiah - the meaning of the passages and good historical background so you get the full picture of what you are reading and "brings Jeremiah alive." I purchased it for myself first; this purchase was a gift for a friend who is an avid student of Jeremiah.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very recent commentary by a highly-respected scholar and seminary professor, and is one of the two best commentaries on Lamentations (the other being by F.W. Dobbs-Allsop) available. Longman provides a close reading which is comprehensible to the non-expert but solidly based on the Hebrew text. His insights are profound. Strongly recommended.
