The minor prophets are short and their message is often swift. But they must not be overlooked, says Ironside, for they convey an important history between God and the people of Israel, Judah, and the surrounding nations. More importantly, they reveal the character of God. Through the minor prophets, we see God revealed through both harsh words and soothing language, in both justice and mercy, and through plagues, oracles, and miracles. In this volume, Ironside’s chapter-by-chapter commentary brings to the fore the most important themes from the minor prophets.

Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
