Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. With careful discourse analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, the authors trace the flow of argument in each Old Testament book, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.

Jonah: God’s Scandalous Mercy analyzes and interpreting the Hebrew text of Jonah—allowing pastors to quickly grasp the big ideas of each passage and how they fit in Jonah and the Old Testament’s greater context. Kevin J. Youngblood demonstrates the many linguistic connections between words and expressions in the book of Jonah itself, as well as within many other passages in both the Old and New Testaments.
