Excerpt


The Holman Old Testament Commentary has two volumes on the minor prophets that came to be so called because of their size but not their importance. This volume contains commentary on the last six of the minor prophets. Despite the fact that each of the 12 books of the Minor Prophets were written at different times and places, sometime in the development of the Hebrew canon, these twelve books were bound together in one scroll. Over time, they came to be called "The Twelve." Some Old Testament scholars have argued that there is an overall structure to Minor Prophets. Paul House argues that the first six books, Hosea to Micah have sin as their theme. Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah emphasize punishment while Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi focus on restoration.

In this commentary, Steven Miller makes clear the message and enduring relevance of each of these six prophets.In The New American Commentary and in Shepherd's Notes , Dr. Miller has served as a translator of the Holman Christian Standard Bible, and has written extensively for Southern Baptist Bible study curriculum. Steve and his wife Paula have two daughters, Miriam and Rachel.

    Excerpt


    NBS materials are inter-denominational and are being used around the world to develop a program of outreach inductive Bible studies. 12 chapters of discussion questions, leader notes, and prayer on the book of Matthew. God described his promised leader as a King, the Messiah, and yet a suffering servant. Matthew,a despised tax collector for the Romans, became one of Jesus' disciples. Other people rejected Jesus because he didn't fit their preconceptions of how God would act. Matthew offers Jesus' genealogy, birth, Old Testament prophecies, Jesus' teachings including the Sermon on the Mount, His compassion, His power, and clashes with the religious leaders as evidence that Jesus fulfilled God's promises. You can compare God's surprises with your expectations.

    Excerpt


    History and prophecy merge in the books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah. The crises of Judah and its neighbors, bewailed by the three prophets, anticipated world-shaking events that were yet to come. Robertson combines biblical theology with contemporary awareness, confronting readers with the ancient call to repentance and faith. As with every volume of the New International Commentary Series, the introduction discusses questions of date, authorship, and structure. The commentary proper, based on Robertson's own translation, is predominantly expository, leaving details of text and translation for the footnotes. Hardcover from Eerdmans, 384 pages.

    Excerpt


    "Affluence, exploitation and the profit motive were the most notable features of the society which Amos observed and in which he worked ... Standards had gone to pot. Authority and the rule of law were despised, and national leadership, while revelling in the publicity and dignity of position...seemed to be contributing to the complete breakdown of law and order." Thus J.A. Motyer exposes and explains the astonishingly relevant, but never popular, message of the prophet Amos. Michael Green says, "Alec Motyer has clearly got the spirit of Amos in his blood. He loves the prophet from Tekoa, and takes endless pains to give full weight to every syllable of the prophecy. He is, of course, a distinguished scholar, and we are given full value on that front; but you will find here none of the dreary academic deadness which all too often comes through in commentary work." J.A. Motyer was fromerly principal of Trinity College, Bristol, England. He is the Old Testament editor for this series and has written numerous commentaries.

    Excerpt


    Ray Beeley here opens up the meaning of Hosea in a straightforward way, showing that the waywardness of God's people, in both Old Testament times and New, does not prevent the magnificent display of God's saving sanctifying love. The men whom God used to give the Scriptures were not prepared for their task in an easy, painless way. Rather, their experiences were ordained by God so that, when they delivered God's Word, they could do so with deep feeling and conviction. This was never more true that in the case of the prophet Hosea, whose painful experience with his wife Gomer prepared him to understand the ways of God with his people. In explaining the meaning of Hosea's prophecy, the author makes frequent helpful reference to the writings of earlier commentators on the book.

    Excerpt


    In this study of Daniel, Pastor Rodney Stortz showcases the coming triumph of God's kingdom. Stortz's careful exegesis and perceptive applications focus on personal holiness, the wisdom and power of God, and the importance of Daniel's prophecies concerning the Messiah, the Antichrist, and Antiochus Epiphanes. In addition, this commentary uses the light of the New Testament to unseal Daniel's scroll, giving a clear understanding of his prophecies. This expositional commentary shows plainly how central the book of Daniel is for understanding coming judgment and the necessity for faithful living until then.
