A bit thin, but for most readers, this will prove a useful tool on Jeremiah. Lamentations isn't given as much attention as one would hope for- almost feels like a throwaway or appendix to Jeremiah.

While the NIVAC is an uneven series, the volume covering Jeremiah and Lamentations is regarded as a sound choice for any reader, but especially the more general reader. Tremper Longman says it reflects, “A very sensitive theological reading that also brings these two books into touch with the contemporary world. In keeping with the series, Dearman does not deal with technical issues.” [Full Review]
With a book like Lamentations, it is sometimes difficult to comprehend the contemporary significance. Dearman does an outstanding job showing the way in which this book remains very relevant 2500 years after the first destruction of Jerusalem. This commentary will be particularly helpful for pastors.

Commentary on Jeremiah and Lamentations with a strong emphasis on contemporary application. A wide variety of social, political and ethical applications are highlighted, and Dearman believes prophecies of the land and temple have their ultimate fulfilment in Jesus. Due to the limited space available for "original meaning", not every verse is commented on specifically. It would probably complement a more academic commentary well. [Full Review]
Brief comments on text with primary focus on modern application. Evangelical. [Full Review]
