The Minor Prophets dramatize the character of God as few other books in the Bible do. According to noted expositor James Montgomery Boice, they particularly highlight three aspects of God's character: his sovereignty, his holiness, and his love. The messages of the Minor Prophets and their pertinent application for our lives should not be dismissed.
This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the Minor Prophets integrates rigorous scholarship with accessible writing. It will inform a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--and help you understand and apply the truths found in the text.
Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he also relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life.
Volume 1 surveys Hosea through Jonah, covering such topics as:
The Second Greatest Story in the Bible (Hosea 1:1-2:1)
The Divided Heart of Israel (Hosea 10:1-15)
Peter's Text at Pentecost (Joel 2:28-32)
How God Views Religion (Amos 4:1-5:15)
Deliverance in Zion (Obadiah 15-21)
The Greatest Revival in History (Jonah 3:1-10)
"I strongly recommend this commentary to Bible teachers, expository preachers, and Christian communicators. Even new believers will get plenty of material here. Buy it if you can, and you will find yourself reaching for it very often. The exposition is short enough for the dedicated Bible Student, but also long enough to do justice to the books being expounded. He is able to bring out the message and emphasis of each book in such a way that none who reads these books will remain untouched."--Brethren Assemblies
