After disliking the Hosea commentary which seemed to have no flow in the English language, I was worried about starting this book. Thankfully it was much more readable and gave a workmanlike effort to understanding the two books. I think solid but unspectacular is the way to describe everything here. The intros set the time and place and interact with scholarship about the books. Since there is more text to Scripture ratio than most Tyndale books, there is more room for talking about other commentaries. Joel is viewed as dealing exclusively with grasshoppers which is a bit odd as I assumed some symbolism. Amos is presented as the first of the later prophets which helps set his place.
Hubbard's commentaries on Hosea and Joel are clear and accessible. The same is true for his commentary on Amos. For those seeking an introductory level commentary, Hubbard is probably the best place to begin. [Full Review]
I placed Hubbard's commentary on Hosea in third place in my post on Hosea commentaries. His commentary on Joel also takes the bronze. He is in general agreement with Dillard on the date of the book and the interpretation of the locust plague in chapter 1. His commentary, however, is written at a much more accessible level.
