Part of the International Critical Commentary Series


Jeremiah (ICC) Jeremiah ICC 1-25 by William McKane

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. William McKane's volumes on Jeremiah are now made available in paperback for the first time.


. . . 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 *
