In this book you will discover the theme of Joel: the day of Yahweh. You will also discover more about the one to whom the day belongs: Yahweh. The people were facing devastating calamity and Joel calls the society to repent in order that they might escape this judgment and once again enjoy mercy and favor of Yahweh. Obadiah also focuses on the dual aspects of the theme both that there is judgment and that blessing.

This is a fine [commentary] which should provide a valuable resource for serious students of the Old Testament for many years.

—Geoffrey Grogan, translator of Amos for the New King James Version
