Overview

In this commentary, Thomas Renz reads Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah as three carefully crafted writings of enduring relevance that each make a vital contribution to the biblical canon.

Discussing the historical settings, Renz takes up both long-standing issues, such as the relationship of Zephaniah to Josiah’s reforms, as well as the socioeconomic conditions of the time suggested by recent archaeological research. The place of these writings within the Book of the Twelve is given fresh consideration, including the question what one should make of the alleged redaction history of Nahum and Habakkuk.

The author’s careful translation of the text comes with detailed textual notes, illuminating some of the most outstanding poetry of the Bible (Nahum) and one of its most difficult to translate chapters (Habakkuk 3). The thorough verse-by-verse commentary is followed by stimulating theological reflection, opening up venues for teaching and preaching from these prophetic writings.

No matter their previous familiarity with these and other Minor Prophets, scholars, pastors, and lay readers alike will find needed guidance in working through these difficult but important books of the Bible.
