Product Description

In this first of Peter C. Craigie'stwo-volume work, the books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah are treated. Although differing in substance as well as style, these prophetic books are united in their common purpose: the declaration of the word of God to the people of God. Craigie illuminates how these books provide an understanding of the transition from an old state religion to the birth pangs of a newly formed community of God's people.

Publisher's Description

Peter C. Craigie explores the Twelve Prophets, showcasing Israel's religious evolution from monarchy to exile and new beginnings.

Taken together, the Twelve Prophets offer a panoramic view of Israel's religion during one of the most critical periods in the Israelites' history. From their false confidence at the time of the monarchy, to their despair during the Exile, and finally to the period of new hopes and aspirations after the Exile, these books provide an understanding of the transition from an old state religion to the birth pangs of a newly formed community of God’s people. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah are the figures considered in this first of Peter C. Craigie’s two-volume work. Although differing in substance as well as style, these prophetic books are united in their common purpose: the declaration of the word of God to the people of God.

The Daily Study Bible series seamlessly continues the legacy of William Barclay’s renowned New Testament series by delving into the texts of the Old Testament, weaving together ancient wisdom and modern insights for a transformative reading experience. Perfectly tailored for individual study, spirited group discussions, or classroom exploration, the Daily Study Bible series offers an indispensable resource for spiritual seekers and scholars alike. Within these volumes, readers will encounter a profound exploration of the Scriptures, uncovering the profound messages they held in the past and discerning their relevance in the present.
