Brand New: Dearman on Hosea (NICOT) + NICOT Sale

Not long ago the Westminster Bookstore partnered with Eerdmans Publishing to offer a special deal on The Letter to the Hebrews by Peter T. O'Brien along with a discount on the rest of the Pillar NT Commentary series.  I took advantage of this and am very glad I did.

Well, Westminster Bookstore is at it again with another great opportunity.  They are partnering again with Eerdmans Publishing to offer a special deal on J. Andrew Dearman's New International Commentary Series volume, The Book of Hosea.

View the Table of Contents here.

Below is a sampling of the high praise that Dearman's commentary is receiving:

"This is a welcome addition to the NICOT series. Dearman's commentary provides the most recent deep engagement with the ancient text of Hosea the prophet. Dialoguing with the best of scholarship, the commentary offers both detailed exegesis of the text with accompanying translation from the original Hebrew, as well as general overviews at key literary junctures to orient the reader to the progressive development of the book as a whole. Particularly helpful is Dearman's sensitivity to the social context of ancient Israelite households. He restores the vivid metaphorical colors of the book of Hosea long faded by history."
Mark J. Boda— McMaster Divinity College, McMaster University

"Serious engagement with the book of Hosea now starts with Dearman's commentary."
Tremper Longman III— Westmont College

"This is a welcome addition to the NICOT series on one of the most important prophets of ancient Israel.... readers will not be disappointed by Dearman's thorough and penetrating exegesis."
Bill T. Arnold— Asbury Theological Seminary

Until August 19th, Westminster Bookstore is offering Dearman's new Hosea volume for 45% off of its list price. At the same time, they are offering an extra 10% off of every NICOT volume's already discounted price with a purchase of 2 or more (so if someone buys 2 NICOT volumes they will receive and extra 10% off of each).
