Jonah, revised and expanded edition

A Handbook on the Hebrew Text

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.

Review

"A distinctive addition to the commentary literature, and one we can be grateful to have."—David J. Reimer, Expository Times

"This book can undoubtedly help readers move beyond the micro-syntactic analysis offered by most introductory Hebrew grammars and enable them to come to a better understanding of clauses and their syntactic function—and thus to a better understanding of the biblical text itself."—Karl Möller, Review of Biblical Literature

"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
