I picked up this book as a study aid for a recent sermon series through the twelve books of the Old Testament known as the minor prophets. The book and my sermon series shared the same goal: to display the prophetic glimpses of Christ contained in each book.
To be sure, on the surface, the Minor Prophets are often difficult and confounding to understand. Of the Prophets, Martin Luther once remarked, “The prophets have a queer way of talking… like people who instead of proceeding in an orderly way ramble off from one thing to the next so that you cannot make head or tail of them.” This book served to clarify some of this confusion. It is an easily accessible read for most people, and a helpful tool for digging deeper in a section of God’s Word that often get’s neglected in our spiritual lives.
