In this title, professor Robert B. Salters contributes his commentary on "Lamentations to the International Critical Commentary Series". 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. The new commentaries continue this tradition. All new evidence now available is incorporated and new methods of study are applied. The authors are of the highest international standing. No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. Robert B. Salters, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament at St. Andrews University provides a masterful commentary on "Lamentations", as befits this prestigious commentary series. For over one hundred years, the "International Critical Commentary" series has held a special place among works on the Bible.
It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis - linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological - with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series. No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. These are the first paperback editions to be published cover the heart of the New Testament, providing a wealth of information and research in accessible and attractive format.
