Although they ministered for more than three centuries during some of Israel's most tumultuous days, the Minor Prophets remain a mystery to many Christians in the 21st century.
Old Testament scholars Richard Alan Fuhr, Jr. and Gary E. Yates believe that the message of the twelve Minor Prophets is relevant for the church today, and they re-introduce these important books of the Bible to contemporary Christians.
Ideal for use as a textbook as well as for personal study,The Message of the Twelve surveys the historical background of each prophetic book, the prophet's message and themes, as well as the book's place in the biblical canon. The authors also provide in-depth exposition of each book-from Hosea's metaphor of Israel's infidelity and Nahum's warnings of foreign judgments, to Haggai's postexilic call and Malachi's vision of future restoration. The Message of the Twelve goes beyond typical biblical surveys to examine the key interpretive issues in each book, including important literary insights from the Hebrew text.
Drawing on the prophets' proclamations to ancient Israel and Judah, the authors emphasize that the church today must heed the call to reject apathy and return to a vibrant relationship with the living God.

"The twelve relatively short books known as the Minor Prophets give us a vision of God that pierces the darkness of our world and should evoke both healthy fear of, and humble submission to, this sovereign King of the world. Yet because these books were written in a much different time and place, they prove to be challenging to modern readers. Professors Fuhr and Yates are to be commended for producing a reliable guide to these books that will enable modern readers to grasp their profound message and to gain a greater appreciation for the God who is the central character therein. They explain with clarity and insight the message of these prophets in their ancient setting and then show us how that message is relevant in our modern context. This book will serve as an ideal introductory textbook for courses on the Minor Prophets."
-Robert B. Chisholm Jr., department chair and senior professor of Old Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Some parts of the Old Testament desperately need helpful resources to assist students of the Word to grow in their understanding of God and his expectations for his people. The prophetic books, and the Minor Prophets in particular, offer the interpreter of Scripture unique challenges, but also tremendous blessings. Fuhr and Yates have provided a superb resource that explains the text of each book, includes clear visuals that facilitate a readers understanding of key features, and connects expositional details with the theological message of those books. I look forward to having this book in my personal library and making it available to my students."
-Michael A. Grisanti, professor of Old Testament, director of Th.M. studies, and director of TMS Israel Study Trip, The Master's Seminary
