Although the minor prophets are most closely associated with issues of social justice, Charles Aaron demonstrates that they address many kinds of issues facing today's Christians, including modern-day idolatry, pastoral care, intercession, evangelism, and christology. For each of these three prophets, Aaron provides a brief introduction designed to help the preacher get into the books quickly. He explores selected texts, providing a detailed exegesis and discussion of the problems and possibilities in preaching from the text, the use of metaphors by the prophets, and how the final redaction of the books influence our theology and preaching. For each text discussed Aaron offers at least two sermons, one preached by Aaron and the other or others from pastors and professors from the United States and Canada. Contributors are Timothy K. Bruster, Page L. D. Creach, Ann I. Hoch, Virgil P. Howard, David Schnasa Jacobsen, Alyce M. McKenzie, A. Carter Shelley, and William C. Turner.
