Commentaries on Hosea

Keith Mathison Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of his top five commentaries on Hosea at the Ligonier Ministries blog. The list is solid. But I would replace either Hubbard or Kidnder with Duane Garrett (NAC). I would also add Gary V. Smith (NIVAC) to the Runners Up category. In any case, Mathison’s top five are:

1. Douglas Stuart -- Hosea-Jonah (Word Biblical Commentary, 1987).
The single best commentary on the first five minor prophets is the commentary by

2. Thomas E. McComiskey -- The Minor Prophets (2009 [1992]).
3. David Allan Hubbard -- Hosea (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 1989).
4. Derek Kidner -- The Message of Hosea (The Bible Speaks Today, 1984).

5. Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman -- Hosea (Yale Anchor Bible, 1980).
