The book of Habakkuk has much to teach us about suffering and complaint, faith and fear, and the fidelity of God in times of trouble; it generates reflection on prayer, peace, violence, and faithfulness. In this volume—one of the few commentaries examining Habakkuk by itself—Heath Thomas explores this overlooked Old Testament prophet in order to hear God’s address for us today.

Utilizing traditional biblical scholarship, Thomas draws from the well of Christian and Jewish interpretation through the centuries. The first part of his commentary is a theological exegesis that engages with both systematic and biblical theology. The second part reflects on the text from a theological perspective, looking for main themes and connections to the rest of the biblical canon.

  1. Erich Javier Astudillo Acevedo
    This is the first commentary of this series that I read. I came to it with no particular expectative and it was a wonderful surprise. I went though Habakkuk reading this one together with the NICOT and they complement each other very well. The distribution of this one is uneven, being surprisingly deep in the foundation of chapter 1 and giving great insight that complements the other commentary very well. The final chapter is not so deeply developed as the author admits that space is not enough, but this gets complemented by the final section of biblical theology. I found it really good dealing with prayer, suffering and the process of maturity. The essays are short, but are excellent material to reflect upon the brokenness of the world and our blessed hope of a better world free of sin. I hope the rest of the series keeps the level of this one.
