In this first of Peter C. Craigie'stwo-volume work, the books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah are treated. Although differing in substance as well as style, these prophetic books are united in their common purpose: the declaration of the word of God to the people of God. Craigie illuminates how these books provide an understanding of the transition from an old state religion to the birth pangs of a newly formed community of God's people.
Taken together, the Twelve Prophets offer a panoramic view of Israel's religion during one of the most critical periods in the Israelites' history. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah are the figures considered in this first of Peter C. Craigie's two-volume work. Although differing in substance as well as style, these prophetic books are united in their common purpose: the declaration of the word of God to the people of God.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
Peter C. Craigie was Professor of Religious Studies, Dean of the Faculty of Humanites, and Academic Vice-President at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
