Broadman & Holman

New International Version

An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture

"Aided by his literary sensitivity, the author explains the rhetorical strategies underlying the structural features he discerns in these two books.  Since Garrett treats disputed interpretive matters clearly and judiciously, relegating technical arguments to the footnotes, readers can weigh the options for themselves without the distraction of polemic.  This commentary provocatively addresses such theological and ethical issues as sensus plenior, religious art and idolatry, feminism, and the Christian response to natural disasters, demonstrating that Hosea and Joel still have much to teach the contemporary church." -- Richard L. Schultz, Wheaton College
