Lofty verbosity. No.

A solid, reliable, and readable commentary. Less focused on linguistics and textual criticism, but focused on exegesis of the text as it stands, so very much focused at pastors and teachers.
I have already mentioned Allen's commentary in a couple of previous posts. It is a slightly technical work, but it should be accessible to most pastors and laymen. [Full Review]

In terms of technicality, Allen's commentary on Joel falls somewhere in the middle. The NICOT series is thorough, but it remains generally accessible to most readers. In his section on Joel, Allen offers a helpful survey of the various arguments for different dates. Like Dillard, he ultimately decides in favor of an early post-exilic date. On the interpretation of chapter 1, Allen agrees with the majority view, taking the description literally. Overall, a helpful commentary. [Full Review]
