New International Commentary on the Old Testament (NICOT): The Book of Lamentations (Goldingay)

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: New International Commentary on the Old Testament (NICOT): The Book of Lamentations (Goldingay)
Publisher: Eerdmans Publishing Company
Author: John Goldingay

Description

The book of Lamentations is one of the most vivid representations of grief and trauma in the Hebrew Bible. Written in the wake of the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonian Empire, it is comprised of five poems of twenty-two stanzas each, in a manner of tight formal unity unparalleled by any other work in the Scriptures.

In this volume, widely respected Old Testament scholar John Goldingay analyzes these and other aspects of Lamentations while keeping a constant eye on the book’s meaning and use as Christian Scripture. After a thorough introduction that explores matters of background, composition, and theology, Goldingay provides an original translation of the book from the Masoretic text along with verse-by-verse commentary.

This volume is available for purchase individually, or as part of the following sets:
New International Commentary on the Old Testament (NICOT) 32 Vols.
New International Commentary on the Old & New Testament (NICOT/NICNT) 59 Vols.

This volume will be a valuable and timely resource for students, ministers, and scholars who will find it a joy to consult as they study Lamentations." - Nancy L. deClaisse-Walford, McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University
