“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is informative, thought-provoking, and –despite being a commentary – holds the reader’s attention. It made me appreciateLamentations in a new way. To be recommended.” (The Swedish Exegetical Yearbook 2014, 1 October 2014)
“In this engrossing investigation of Lamentations --a splendid addition to the Wiley-Blackwell commentary series-- Paul Joyce and Diana Lipton draw on a fascinating array of visual, literary, musical, scholarly, religious and secular responses […] an indispensable resource for scholars and students of the book of Lamentations, for those interested in the manifold ways it has been interpreted and appropriated, and for anyone curious about reception history in general and what it can teach us.”―J. Cheryl Exum, University of Sheffield
“Mourning the physical Jerusalem is the business of the biblical Lamentations. Showing us how this is done in the book and in its reception history, over the ages, is the business of the present volume. The volume's value as guide through mourning is greatly enhanced by its inception as a Jewish-Christian authorly cooperation. Jerusalem the symbolical is thus well served; and we, the readers, those who nurture our own Jerusalems, gain a guide to mourning―as much necessary, perhaps, as any guide for joy.”―Athalya Brenner, Universiteit van Amsterdam
