“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)
