Product Description

History and prophecy merge in the books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah. The crises of Judah and its neighbors, bewailed by the three prophets, anticipated world-shaking events that were yet to come. Robertson combines biblical theology with contemporary awareness, confronting readers with the ancient call to repentance and faith. As with every volume of the New International Commentary Series, the introduction discusses questions of date, authorship, and structure. The commentary proper, based on Robertson's own translation, is predominantly expository, leaving details of text and translation for the footnotes. Hardcover from Eerdmans, 384 pages.

Publisher's Description

The close-knit bond between prophecy and history, according to O. Palmer Robertson, becomes particularly clear through the study of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah. As the historical context of their messages is explored, it becomes ever more apparent that biblical history -- in addition to providing the context for prophecy -- actually embodies and functions as prophecy. The events that occurred to Judah and its neighbors spoke in anticipation of world-shaking circumstances that were yet to come.

In this commentary Robertson combines the insights of biblical theology with a keen awareness of the age in which we live. After first dealing with the relevant background issues of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah -- redemptive-historical setting, theological perspective, date and authorship, and so on -- Robertson applies the care and precision of an exegete and the concern of a pastor to his verse-by-verse exposition of each book. The result is a relevant confrontation with the ancient call to repentance and faith -- a confrontation greatly needed in today's world.

Editorial Reviews

Christianity TodayRunner-up Critics Choice for Commentaries (1991)

Walter C. Kaiser Jr.
"O. Palmer Robertson's work on Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah is a first-class theological commentary with unique applications to the present day. His conclusions are balanced and well aimed with regard to the particulars of the immediate historical situation as well as with regard to the overall canonical stance of the ongoing drama of revelation. From these three orphan books of the Old Testament Robertson has crafted a most memorable message for the present-day church."

Tremper Longman III
"Robertson has produced an outstanding volume that treats three of the lesser-known Old Testament prophecies. He writes in a clear style with an emphasis on the rich theological meaning of these prophets and with a pastor's insight regarding their relevance to Christians today."
