The Minor Prophets dramatize the character of God as few other books in the Bible do. According to noted expositor James Montgomery Boice, they particularly highlight three aspects of God’s character: his sovereignty, his holiness, and his love. The messages of the Minor Prophets and their pertinent application for our lives should not be dismissed.

This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the Minor Prophets integrates rigorous scholarship with accessible writing. It will inform a wide range of readers—from serious Bible students to interested laypersons—and help you understand and apply the truths found in the text.

Volume 1 surveys Hosea through Jonah, covering such topics as:

• The Second Greatest Story in the Bible (Hosea 1:1–2:1)

• The Divided Heart of Israel (Hosea 10:1–15)

• Peter's Text at Pentecost (Joel 2:28–32)

• How God Views Religion (Amos 4:1–5:15)

• Deliverance in Zion (Obadiah 15–21)

• The Greatest Revival in History (Jonah 3:1–10)
