With their messages of doom and judgment, the Minor Prophets have not been popular subjects in the history of biblical interpretation. This volume, which now combines three volumes into one, remedies this neglect by offering an authoritative, evangelical treatment of the prophets. Here, noted scholars—including Bruce Walkte, Tremper Longman III, F.F. Bruce, J. Alec Motyer, and Joyce Baldwin—provide meticulous exegesis of the Hebrew text and relate the message of the ancient prophets to contemporary life in practical and meaningful ways.
In the commentary proper, the exegesis examines the Hebrew text in detail, interacts with current literature, and sets forth sounds conclusions. The exposition discusses related theological and hermeneutical issues, explains the flow of the prophetic narrative, and makes appropriate applications.
In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

—Review and Expositor
A worthwhile investment both for the interested and knowledgeable layperson as well as the intermediate-level student.
Overall, this is probably the best exegetical commentary on these books for the pastor’s study.
—Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly
Although written from an evangelical perspective [this volume does not] shy away from critical questions, making it a useful book for both the academic scholar and the minister in the local congregation.
—Old Testament Essays
Its combination of attention given to technical and expositional issues makes it one of the best sets on this part of the Old Testament.
—Master’s Seminary Journal
A solid resource for both student and pastor. It provides a demonstration of what evangelical scholarship can do as it honestly wrestles with the text.
—Andrews University Seminary Studies
The information in this book will help in any serious study of an often neglected segment of the Bible.
