In this ACT volume, Thomas Scheck provides a new translation of Julian of Eclanum's commentaries on Job, Hosea, Joel, and Amos. Gain insight into how early Christians read texts such as God's speech to Job, Hosea's symbolic representation of God's unending love for a faithless Israel, Joel's anticipation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and Amos's call for social justice.
Joel's arresting imagery has shaped the church's eschatological vision of a day of wrath. Amos's ringing indictments have periodically awakened the conscience of God's people. Twenty-five-hundred years later, those prophetic words still speak powerfully. This Tyndale commentary examines the two books' literary features, historical context, theology, and ethics.
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 second volume give readers access to what scholars consider to be Jerome's greatest achievement.
From Joel's arresting imagery to Amos's ringing indictments, these prophetic words never fail to awaken and instruct their reader. David Allan Hubbard shows how Joel and Amos addressed Israel's mind and heart. This commentary serves as a valuable guide to the fascinating world and challenging word of these two prophets.
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.
