Abstract

this is perhaps the most extraordinary feature of this commentary, its failure to interact with or even acknowledge views with which Levine disagrees. As a mere European, I looked in vain for any mention of modem German or British commentaries or monographs on Leviticus. But then I realized we were not the only ones deliberately ignored. The most prolific author of all on this area, Jacob Milgrom, is mentioned, I think, in only one footnote. In short, this commentary needs to be used with discretion. Caveat emptor. G.J. Wenham Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Higher Education Cheltenham. ENGlAND THE MINOR PROPHETS: AN EXEGETICAL AND EXPOSITORY COMMENTARY, VOLUME 1: HOSEA, JOEL, AND AMOS.

The first in a three-volume series, this commentary follows the tradition of Keil and Delitzsch, pairing close attention to the Hebrew text with Christian evangelical hermeneutics.
