Check out this new commentary on Jeremiah and Lamentations by OT scholar par excellence, Tremper Longman III! I’ll look forward to giving this a read when I finally start my trek through the prophets!
I’ve been learning a lot from this nice little commentary series while working through 1 & 2 Kings by Iain Provan. For a low price of $4.49 per volume from christianbook.com (plus shipping of course – purchase of 5 commentaries required), I also recently purchased Leslie Allen’s volume on Ezra-Nehemiah, John Goldingay’s volume on Isaiah, and Christopher Wright’s volume on Deuteronomy, to name a few. All come well regarded by Longman in his OT commentary survey.
Go ahead and pick up Longman’s contribution to this series when you have the chance!
