Product Description

During Habakkuk’s time, God’s people turned against him. Strife and violence surrounded the prophet. And yet, God called him to be faithful. In Faith Amid the Ruins, Heath Thomas brings the story of Habakkuk to life - reminding us that although it’s a small book about a lesser known prophet, it’s themes and importance are anything but minor. When we face hardship and opposition, it’s easy to seek security and stability instead of God’s will. Habakkuk teaches us both about the faithfulness of God and what it looks like to live faithfully before God when life turns upside down.

Publisher's Description

If God asked you to live faithfully in the midst of upheaval, even if the cost was high, how would you respond? What if he made extraordinary and difficult demands? The prophet Habakkuk struggled with these very questions as he tried to follow God step-by-step during a time of unrest.

"Living by faith" sounds great on the surface, but when we face hardship and opposition, it's easy to seek security and stability instead of God’s will. In Faith Amid the Ruins, Heath Thomas walks us through the book of Habakkuk, revealing the heart of this story about living by faith in light of God's own faithfulness toward us.

Editorial Reviews

"Faith Amid the Ruins is an extraordinary little book. In it, Heath Thomas reveals the theological center of Habakkuk: God calls us to be faithful even in the midst of the most difficult social and political circumstances, and makes our fidelity possible through his own faithfulness toward us. I can't imagine a more timely message for global Christians today."
--Bruce Ashford, author of Every Square Inch and One Nation Under God
"This is a fine short commentary on Habakkuk for Christian readers who want to understand the fascinating little prophetic book of Habakkuk, and use it as part of their Christian faith and discipleship. Heath not only brings his deep scholarship to it but also his experience as a teacher, a parent, and a Christian leader. The book is an informative guide, but more, a help to self-knowledge and devotion. I recommend it warmly."
--J. Gordon McConville, professor of Old Testament theology, University of Gloucestershire
"In his commentary on Habakkuk, Heath Thomas provides an accessible introduction to this short but relevant prophetic book. His theological and interpretive essays orient all readers to the riches of this book and its relevance for the Christian life today."
--Mark J. Boda, professor of Old Testament, McMaster Divinity College, McMaster University
