In the Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible’s most widely used volume, Dennis Tucker provides a foundational analysis of the text of Jonah. This second edition of Jonah is distinguished by the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text. Tucker’s analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are not always addressed in standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Jonah also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics—specifically, this edition relies on the methodology of generative grammar utilized in other recent volumes in this series. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the Hebrew biblical text.
This volume is part of the Baylor Handbooks on the Hebrew Bible Series. You can purchase the entire Old Testament Set here or a set of both Old and New Testament volumes

"In the crowded genre of biblical commentaries, this series will surely find a niche among students and pastors, who need more lexical, morphological, and syntactical help than most commentaries today offer. Tucker's volume reflects a remarkable amount of erudition and hard work." — Bill T. Arnold, Asbury Theological Seminary
