Product Description

Gregory Cook helps us to navigate the book of Nahum, a poetic masterpiece that teaches us about God's love for his adulterous people. As the prophet Nahum shows us, God's passionate love threatens all our other loves. When we find God boring and the world fascinating, we commit the sin of rebellion - but God, with severe compassion, refuses to abandon us when we stray into destructive paths. Ultimately, Nahum's prophecy is fulfilled in Christ, who relentlessly pursued his people and entered history in order to redeem them for himself. Cook further aids our understanding with historical background, cultural references, literary allusions, poetic devices, and challenging application.

Editorial Reviews

"Greg has done the hard work of digging into the Hebrew text; he has gleaned insights from scholars and learned about the world and time in which Nahum wrote; he has sat with and listened carefully and humbly to the text; he has seen and appreciated how it speaks about and points to Jesus; and he has then gone on to consider how its message speaks to us today as people in union with Christ."

Author/Artist Review

Author: Gregory Cook
Submitted: March 15, 2016

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have always loved the Old Testament. The prophets, in particular, fascinate me. I recently finished a Ph.D. in Biblical Interpretation from Westminster Theological Seminary. I wrote my dissertation on Nahum and came to marvel at its intricacy and depth.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The book of Nahum is the least taught, least preached book in the history of the church. The language is difficult. Commentaries usually claim that the book has one simple theme--judgment against wicked nations. This makes Nahum seem redundant since almost every book in the Bible teaches that God judges wickedness. I wrote this book to explain what make Nahum unique and why it deserves our attention. Nahum is much more complex than it gets credit for. I wanted to help pastors and Bible study leaders understand its theology in the hope that they could then teach it to others. I also wrote it for those who want to understand the book for their own edification.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Most people in the church have no knowledge of Nahum. I want people to appreciate the prophecy’s beauty and complexity. More importantly, Nahum prophesied about Jesus. By studying Nahum we can understand the Gospel more completely. If the church continues to ignore Nahum, it will lack a full understanding of Jesus’ mission. Nahum prophesies Jesus’ incarnation, crucifixion, descent into Hell, liberation of captives, and destruction of Satan. Ultimately, I want people to gain a more complete knowledge of the Bible and greater understanding of Christ’s work.
