This three-volume set is a tremendous work ofscholarship on the book of Jeremiah. Lundbom focuses on rhetorical criticism and his literary analysis shows careful consideration and exegetical attentiveness to rhetorical artistry. It speaks much of Lundboms skill that he often takes a different line from thecritical consensus and makes his own point toprovide what he regards as a more suitable solution, however, in a thoroughly conventional vein. He is pointedly dismissiveof certain critical positions resembling Deuteronomistic redactions in later times thathe finds untenable. In his view, material in the book of Jeremiah is almost all attributable to Jeremiah or Baruch. Lundbom objects the view that the book of Jeremiah is in great disarray, out of chronological sequence and without a coherent plan. On the contrary, he pleads for a certain chronological order with only a couple of possible exceptions. Delimiting literary unitshe usually refers to the Hebrew section markers setumah and petuchah in the MT. Lundboms translation is conservative in as much as he tries to translate the MT as it stands without resorting to emendation. He generally prefers the MT reading to the LXX reading, but this is due to his view that theLXX has suffered through haplography, homoeoteleuton and homoeoarcton. He painstakingly elaborates on this point, but fails to offer more persuasive theories for flawed variants of the LXX. Attached to the volumes are bibliographies, indices and helpful appendices. This commentary as a wholeis a welcome contribution to the interpretation of the book of Jeremiah and deserves wide recognition.
