The prophetical books of the old Testament are commonly divided into the five Major Prophets and the twelve Minor Prophets. Amos, Jonah, and Obadiah, the Bible books commented upon in this book, are listed among the Minor Prophets. But let us not misunderstand “minor.” The word has no reference to inspiration, importance, or value, but rather, to the length of the books. Many of the Minor Prophets record major messages.

Contrary to general opinion, these books treat live, modern-day issues, such as social and religious evils in Amos, the judgments of God in Obadiah, and racial prejudice in Jonah. The studies discuss first the author, the setting, and the purpose of each book. This is followed by an analytical outline which approaches a brief commentary.

Roy Gingrich

Roy Gingrich was an American pastor and author best known for his comprehensive commentary series. He was born to Arthur and Arista Gingrich on February 3, 1920 in Ozark, Illinois, the youngest of four children. Roy received God’s call to enter the Christian ministry in 1941. After intensive preparation and pastoral stints in Illinois and Indiana, he became pastor of Faith Bible Church in Memphis, Tennessee, where he remained for over 40 years.

In 1963, Gingrich graduated cum laude from Victory University (formally Mid-South Bible College) and soon thereafter joined the teaching staff. Gingrich began writing conservative Bible commentaries in 1964. Roy Gingrich’s Commentaries in Outline Form (100 vols.) includes 60 different commentaries on the books of the Bible, and 40 additional commentaries on major Bible themes.

In 2001, Dr. Gingrich retired from a long and fruitful ministry, but continued to revise his commentaries and lecture at colleges and churches in the US. In 2003, he was inducted into the Crichton College Hall of Fame.
