Amos, Jonah, & Micah: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC)
Throughout the Old Testament, Yahweh drew his prophets from the most unlikely circumstances. The minor prophets Amos, Jonah, and Micah were each called out of their ordinary lives to deliver timely messages—both to their original audiences and for us, today. While they’re each unique, these three biblical books can be connected by the theological themes of divine justice, mercy, judgment, and repentance. In this volume, JoAnna M. Hoyt examines these themes in depth, revealing the complexity of the relationship between God and his people. Throughout her commentary, Hoyt closely examines the text of these three prophetic books, giving us a scholarly and applicable exploration for the church.

The Letter to the Ephesians (New International Commentary on the New Testament)
The letter to the Ephesians provokes interpretive questions of authorship, audience, date, occasion, and purpose of writing.

Cohick offers an insightful account of the epistle’s theology and soteriology as she attends to the letter’s expansive prose and lofty vision of God’s redemption. Cohick investigates the complex relationship between Jews and gentiles within the text and in the broader cultural context as she analyzes the epistle’s description of the Church and its appeals for discipleship. Her extensive knowledge of the social realities of women and families in the ancient world is evident throughout.
