For over one hundred years International Critical Commentaries have had a special place among works on the Bible. They bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis - linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological - to help the reader understand the meaning of the books of the Old and New Testaments. A.A. Macintosh's volume on Hosea is now made available in paperback for the first time.
This fine, learned and patient commentary will be a great resource for those who wish to engage in a detailed study of Hosea. [...] Macintosh is tireless in his attempts to elucidate Hosea's language, ranging widely over scholarship of many centuries, but always building his comments into a lucid and coherent synthesis. [...] This is a distinguished, 'advanced' commentary that blends conservatism and innovation, and a worthy addition to the ICC. -- Philip Satterthwaite Anvil In this commentary, the result of a fifteen year effort, Macintosh succeeds admirably in applying traditional linguistic and historical tools of exegesis. -- Gale A. Yee, University of St Thomas, St. Paul The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
