Format: Hardcover
. . ."Micah - Malachi" is a good, solid Protestant (but not dogmatically so) commentary which concentrates strongly on the integrity of the text. I used this book as a secondary reference for a Minor Prophets course I'm teaching and found it quite readable and useful. I was particularly pleased with Micah and Nahum.
Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
One of the difficulties that any commentary series faces is how to apportion out the shorter books, particularly those of the so-called Minor Prophets. The Word editors chose to place the last seven books of the OT in one volume, assigning the task of commenting to Ralph Smith. at the time (1984) a professor of OT at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The problem in this case is that this leaves very little space for each book. The entire commentary (exclusive of indices) is approximately 340 pages, which works out to less than an average of 50 pages per book. Needless to say, it's quite impossible to cover any of these books in the depth that they deserve. While Smith's effort is creditable, one winds up wishing that certain passages were covered in greater detail. Because of this, it is best to look upon the commentary on the various prophets as an overview rather than an in-depth study.

At the same time, because untransliterated Hebrew words and phrases occur both in the text and the notes, one can make maximal use of this commentary only if one has a working knowledge of the Hebrew language. Most people who do are not going to be satisfied with the overview-ish nature of this commentary.

Another drawback is that the commentary proceeds section by section rather than verse by verse, which means that a person looking for a clarification of a particular verse will have to read the entire section (typically several verses in length) to discover what Smith has to say about the particular verse.

Despite these drawbacks, there is still a fair amount of interesting material in this commentary on these often neglected books at the end of our English Old Testament.

A good general introduction to these minor prophets, but very sparse comments on individual verses. Bibliography is best part of the book.
