This addition to the Ancient Christian Texts series offers the first complete English translation of Jerome's Commentaries on the Twelve Prophets. Edited by Thomas Scheck, this volume gives readers access to what scholars consider to be Jerome's greatest achievement.
Nahum prophecies the destruction of Nineveh. Habakkuk questions the Lord of Israel. Zephaniah warns the last great king of Jerusalem. David W. Baker examines the authorship, composition, structure and historical context of each book and highlights the authors' major themes.
Where is God in times of disaster? How can God allow suffering? What are God's people to do about moral decay in society? Three of the minor prophets--Joel, Micah and Habakkuk--provide insights to these problems. David Prior's passage-by-passage exposition of these three books provides careful study and measured insight and application for today's church.
Alberto Ferreiro presents patristic commentary on the Twelve Prophets (the so-called Minor Prophets), bringing new understanding to the books of both the Old and NewTestaments.
