In this volume, Dennis Tucker provides a foundational analysis of the Hebrew text of Jonah. Distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text, Jonah 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 frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Jonah also reflects the most recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics. By filling the gap between popular and technical commentaries, the handbook becomes an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

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, and the appearance of his volume bodes well for the series generally.
