The last six Minor Prophets—Nahum through Malachi—span preexilic and postexilic times. The first three—Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah—lead up to the exile, with themes ranging from God’s judgment to his enduring faithfulness; the final three—Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi—lay spiritual foundations for the community returned from exile, encouraging the temple’s rebuilding, visualizing the messianic age, and affirming God’s covenantal faithfulness.

Authors Laurie Braaten and Jim Edlin have expertly crafted a New Beacon Bible Commentary on these remarkable writings. Together these exceptional scholars have explored the individual themes of these biblical books, while also bringing to light any broader themes these books may share.
