This volume focuses on the book of Nahum, examining not only the issues and context but also the narrative voice and how it differs from the other prophet books in the Old Testament. Lanner studies the book as a whole, looking at the setting, cultural issues, and purpose of the text. In the latter half of the book, she presents her findings on identity and gender. "Who Will Lament Her?" The Feminine and the Fantastic in the Book of Nahum is an important study on this particular minor prophet.
Laurel Lanner teaches theology at the University of Botswana.
