Now for an alternate opinion. I got this commentary from the library encouraged by its high ratings here. I was greatly disappointed however. Unlike the comment from an Amazon reviewer, this is not for the casual reader. I consider myself a pretty strong student of Scripture having read hundreds of commentaries. But this one is much more geared for the scholar and it will not hold your interest for long unless you care about tons of textual details. I also personally found that though he gives you massive detail about the text, he does not do so well explaining the text or summarizing its message. There is also little help for pastors or anyone who just wants to get to know the story of Jonah better and how it applies. If you are a scholar writing your own commentary, you probably will want to consult this commentary, but please do not copy the style. Though there is a place for good scholarly work, I am sometimes amazed how one can read a text of Scripture like this and seem like they are unmoved by it. There is life and excitement in the book of Jonah, it is drowned out in this book.
