This book is a bit long at the tooth and it is tough to write about Jeremiah and Lamentations for the non-seminary student which is roughly who the Tyndale series is for. Isaiah has much about the Messiah, Ezekiel's visions are fascinating and Daniel is replete with end times significance. While all these things are marginally true of Jeremiah, much of the book is simply prophecies about the terrible things about to happen to Israel and the terrible things that happened to the prophet. Lamentations is equally depressing. Trying to explain and make relevant such a book is not easy. Dr. Harrison does a competent job on this thankless task but is constrained by a tight page count. The intros to both books are quite educational though very brief. The actual commentary is competent but sometimes uneven. In a sense like the Isaiah commentary before it, you get the feeling of a longer and more technical commentary that had been cut down. Some passages are covered in overview while other times the book delves into Hebrew word study that is possibly too advanced for the intended audience. Solid as a part of a fine series, but there are probably newer and better single volumes available.

A good brief commentary on Jeremiah & Lamentations. Not as technical as others, but direct and to the point, while supplying most of the pertinent information needed.
