Publisher's Description

Much has been written and said about the prophets of the Old Testament beingrather harsh spokesmen for God. However, as we read through the prophets,we find time and again the anguish and heartache expressed by God throughHis prophets and His great love for His creatures, sinful and rebellious thoughthey be.The purpose of the devotional, Designated for Assignment: God’s Love in theMinor Prophets, is to bring to the forefront, the great love of our Creator. We seethis evidenced especially in these twelve short books written primarily to thepeople of Judah and Israel, but also to Gentiles as well.Each of the twelve devotionals in this book highlight aspects of this love andremind the reader of the wondrous, loving character of God, culminating in Hissending His only Son to die and redeem mankind. It is the purpose of the bookto draw readers closer to our Heavenly Father by gaining a fresh appreciationof the great love He has for us.

Discussion Questions

The twelve books of the Old Testament’s minor prophets may nothave the poetic cadence of one of King David’s psalms or the thrillingdrama of the Bible’s more historical books, but within their pages arefound some of Scripture’s most revealing glimpses into the very heart ofGod. Within each book one encounters unique and insightful aspects ofGod’s love, however sinful and rebellious His people may have been atthe time. In these pages we find a God of tenderness and compassion; aGod who bears hurt beyond measure at the hands of those He loves; aheartbroken God who knows that drastic measures must be taken beforeHis wayward people will return to Him.It is the purpose of this little devotional to highlight our HeavenlyFather’s love during a time in history when the people of Israel and Judahwere at their lowest spiritual point.This devotional has been divided into three sections:1. Prophets ministering primarily to the northern country of Israel.These include Jonah, Amos and Hosea which were written in the8th Century B.C. before Israel’s Assyrian exile in 722 B.C.2. Prophets ministering primarily to the southern kingdom of Judah.Joel, Micah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Habakkuk and Obadiah wereall written before Judah was taken into captivity by the Babyloniansin 586 B.C.3. The Post-Exilic Prophets.Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi were written to the people ofJudah after returning from their exile.Harsh and even difficult to digest at times, these twelve long-neglectedbooks tell us so much of what we need to know of the loving heart ofour Heavenly Father.As much as possible, these devotions have been arranged inchronological order.
