Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With their messages of doom and judgment, the Minor Prophets have not been popular subjects in the history of biblical interpretation. This volume, which now combines three volumes into one, remedies this neglect by offering an authoritative, evangelical treatment of the prophets. Here noted scholars--including Bruce Waltke, Tremper Longman III, F. F. Bruce, J. Alec Motyer, and Joyce Baldwin--provide meticulous exegesis of the Hebrew text and relate the message of the ancient prophets to contemporary life in practical and meaningful ways.

The authors provide their own translations alongside that of the New Revised Standard Version. In the commentary proper, the exegesis (at the top of each page) examines the Hebrew text in detail, interacts with current literature, and sets forth sound conclusions. The exposition (at the bottom of each page) discusses related theological and hermeneutical issues, explains the flow of the prophetic narrative, and makes appropriate applications.

"Preachers and teachers will find the 'nuts and bolts' analysis of the Hebrew text in this commentary to be helpful for their tasks."--Robert R. Ellis, Review and Expositor

"A worthwhile investment both for the interested and knowledgeable layperson as well as the intermediate-level student."--Ronald L. Androphy, Hebrew Studies

"Overall, this is probably the best exegetical commentary on these books for the pastor's study."--John F. Brug, Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly

"Although written from an evangelical perspective [this volume does not] shy away from critical questions, making it a useful book for both the academic scholar and the minister in the local congregation."--S. D. Snyman, Old Testament Essays

"Its combination of attention given to technical and expositional issues makes it one of the best sets on this part of the Old Testament."--Michael A. Grisanti, Master's Seminary Journal

"A solid resource for both student and pastor. It provides a demonstration of what evangelical scholarship can do as it honestly wrestles with the text."--Gerald Wheeler, Andrews University Seminary Studies

"The information in this book will help in any serious study of an often neglected segment of the Bible."--Bible Today
