Jeremiah ICC Volume 1: 1-25 Press Reviews

. . . This is the commentary to purchase, cherish and meditate upon day and night . . . I feel that McKane is due a standing ovation from all the other players currently operating in Jeremiah Studies for his most accomplished achievement . . . This is the Jeremiah commentary for ages to come. * Journal of Theological Studies * McKane pursues the prophecy of Jeremiah in typical ICC fashion. He leaves no aspect of intricacies in the text without comment; a plethora of detail greets the reader at every turn of the page. The author addresses questions relating to technical matters with thorough diligence. * Master's Seminary Journal * In these volumes, McKane's skills achieve their ultimate expression: the rigorously high standards of scholarship . . . his meticulous assembling of evidence from the ancient versions and the medieval commentaries; his innovative and influential theory of the rolling canon ; his balanced presentation of different possibilities of interpretation. * The Independent *
