"The emphasis on reception history makes this volume an important complement to larger critical commentaries within personal and research libraries that hold collections on the prophetic literature." (Religious Studies Review, 1 September 2014)

"The uniqueness of this commentary series is that it is the "first to be devoted primarily to the reception history of the Bible" and it is done in a clearly outlined, user friendly, verse-by-verse commentary format .... This quick, illuminating display of the "genealogy" of interpretations is a unique achievement ... useful to any reader interested in biblical interpretation." (Reviews in Religion & Theology, 4 September 2013)

"It provides a fascinating journey of discovery and can be read, unlike most other commentaries, from cover to cover." (Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception, 1 May 2013)"What a marvelous treasure trove! Jin Hee Han and Richard J. Coggins have made these six prophets come alive by providing rich documentation of their interpretation and impact from the ancient translations to contemporary media. This volume is a must for all students of these prophets--scholars, clergy, and lay people alike."
--C. L. Seow, Princeton Theological Seminary

"The authors have skillfully sampled the entire history of Jewish and Christian interpretation, shaping their compendium into a helpful and fascinating commentary on these six Prophets."
--Robert J. Owens, The General Theological Seminary
