Product Description

Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah are three of the most unique books in the Bible. Whether for their story (Jonah), or their ubiquity (Obadiah), or their message (Micah) they all are critical to the understanding of the Hebrew Scriptures. Yet, mush remains shrouded in mystery as the each book presents difficult problems of their own.

Thankfully the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary has summoned three of the most esteemed scholars in the Old Testament who all share both a vibrant faith and exceptional intellectual acumen. Led by Bruce Waltke, David W. Baker, and T. Desmond Alexander all provide outstanding scholarship on these challenging and sometimes frustrating books.

As such this commentary is highly recommended for all level of biblical student, as its exposition engages scholarly work, but yet sets and maintains the goal of serving the church. Outstanding work.

Publisher's Description

Obadiah's oracle against Edom. Jonah's mission to the city of Nineveh. Micah's message to Samaria and Jerusalem. The texts of these minor but important prophets receive a fresh and penetrating analysis in this introduction and commentary. The authors consider each book's historical setting, composition, structure and authorship, as well as important themes and issues. Each book is then expounded in the concise and informative style that has become the hallmark of the Tyndale series. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Editorial Reviews

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
