Joel & Obadiah: A Mentor Commentary Hardcover – May 20, 2002
Enhance your purchase
In this book you discover the theme of Joel: The day of Yahweh. You will also discover more about who one to whom the day belongs to - Yahweh.
The people were facing devastating calamity and Joel calls the society to repent in order that they might escape this judgment and once again enjoy mercy and favour of Yahweh. Obadiah also focuses on the dual aspects of the theme both that there is Judgement and that blessing.
Mentor commentaries retain a high view of scripture whilst interacting with other research from differing theological viewpoints.
Frequently bought together
This is a fine commentary, exhibiting careful and balanced Old Testament scholarship expressed in attractive, vigorous prose. I did not find a sentence that was not clear: Controversial issues affecting interpretation are well handled, for example the question as to whether the locusts in Joel 2 are literal or picture an invading army. The author argues well for an early date for Joel while recognising the complexity of the issue and presenting contrary viewpoints clearly and fairly.-- Dr. Geoffrey Grogan ( (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author)
... it is colourful, brief, thought-provoking, and useful as an overview, or as a companion to a study in greater depth.-- Jeremy Walker, The Banner of Truth
