It appears that Jeremiah is not one of those books where there is clear and unanimous consensus on the top commentary. However, with that said, most of the experts, and especially the more conservative among them, do commend Thompson’s work. It contains detailed historical and exegetical examinations of the book and is suitable for pastors, scholars and general readers alike. It seems like it is as good a place to begin as any.

Certainly not the best commentary on Jeremiah. Lundbom is more thorough and gives better lines for exegesis than the sometimes insufficient explanations that Thompson gives. Nice as third choice commentary (Lundbom first, Fischer (Herder Th. Kommentar, German second), but after combining Lundbom and Fischer, you don't need Thompson
Probably the best overall commentary on the book of Jeremiah is J.A. Thompson's work in the NICOT series. Although it is moderately technical in places, all Hebrew is transliterated and fully explained. It is therefore accessible to most readers. Thompson writes from an evangelical perspective and offers numerous helpful insights into the meaning of this book. [Full Review]

Provides much more detailed exegetical and historical discussions than Ryken. The two compliment each other nicely.
The standard Evangelical commentary for the last two decades. [Full Review]
