... it is colourful, brief, thought-provoking, and useful as an overview, or as a companion to a study in greater depth. (Banner of Truth)
This is a fine commentary, exhibiting careful and balanced Old Testament scholarship expressed in attractive, vigorous prose. I did not find a sentence that was not clear: Controversial issues affecting interpretation are well handled, for example the question as to whether the locusts in Joel 2 are literal or picture an invading army. The author argues well for an early date for Joel while recognising the complexity of the issue and presenting contrary viewpoints clearly and fairly. (Geoffrey Grogan ~ (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author)
