Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Stirring words of the most outspoken of the Hebrew prophets are reexamined in this concluding volume of the esteemed Anchor Bible Commentary on Jeremiah.
This final book of the three-volume Anchor Bible Commentary gives us translation and commentary on the concluding sixteen chapters of "Jeremiah. Here, during Judah's darkest days, when nationhood came to an end, Jeremiah with his people confronted the consequences of the nation's sin, while at the same time reconstituting a remnant community with hopes to give Israel a future. Jeremiah preached that Israel's God, Yahweh, was calling to account every nation on the Earth, even the nation chosen as his own. For the latter, Jeremiah was cast into a pit and left to die, only to be rescued by an Ethiopian eunuch. But the large collection of Foreign Nation Oracles in the book shows that other nations too were made to drink the cup of divine wrath, swollen as they were by wickedness, arrogant pride, and trust in their own gods. Yet the prophet who thundered Yahweh's judgment was also the one who gave Israel's remnant a hope for the future, expressed climactically in a new and eternal covenant for future days. Here too is the only report in the Bible of an accredited scribe writing up a scroll of oracles for public reading at the Temple.
This magisterial work of scholarship is sure to be essential to any biblical studies curriculum. "Jeremiah 37-52 draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of this preeminent prophet and his message to the world.

By Martin Parra on August 30, 2008
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.
