Product Description

The eloquent and uncompromising calls for social righteousness by some of the Minor Prophets are familiar to many, yet the writings themselves are probably the least studied and least known texts of the Old Testament. Those who are familiar with these books are also aware of the historical and literary problems that plague their study. Drawing on insights from various perspectives; theological, historical, and literary, this commentary on Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah carefully and imaginatively reconstructs the stage on which the message of these four books was conveyed to their Hebrew hearers and shows what relevance, in turn, they hold for contemporary Christians.For each of the books there is a substantial introduction in which the full range of scholarly opinion is presented and assessed, a select bibliography, the author's own translation of the text, a significant contribution to biblical studies in itself, and an extensive commentary. The commentary on Micah is the basic one of these four in that it treats at greater length some of the same forms and motifs that appear in Joel, Obadiah, and Jonah. The introductory material for Joel includes discussions of canonicity and textual criticism that apply to the entire volume.

    Allen is a well respected moderately conservative scholar. He writes well. His volume on these Minor Prophets is no exception to the quality of his work. This is one of the best volumes on this portion of the OT. Even on the rare occasions when I disagree with one of his particular stances, I respect his well reasoned approach. He also writes in a way that is consistent with a high view of scripture. This is a very readable and helpful book.
