In the language of the Bible, "prophecy" has quite a broad meaning, but refers, primarily, to the idea of "speaking in the name of God". The entire Old Testament could be said to be prophetic, but some books carry the names of four "major" and twelve "minor" prophets - a distinction based on their length. Not all of them easy to date, the authors and editors of these books in the "roll of the twelve prophets" lived at times between the eighth century and second century B.C. This volume of the Navarre Bible commentaries sheds light on the twelve minor prophets of the Old Testament: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.

The Psalms aside, the books of the prophets are the Old Testament sources most often referred to in the New Testament. Their message covers all aspects of Israelite and Christian faith - belief in One God, his chosen people, the Messiah and the path to salvation.

Like all the books in the Navarre series, this edition will help to deepen your understanding of these sacred texts. This book completes the Navarre Bible Old Testament series.

    Navarre Bille Commentaries are the best

    Our parish is in its eighth year of <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/bible-studies-c828/">bible study</a> and we wanted to study the Minor Prophets this year. After searching, couldn't find what we wanted, so decided to use the Navarre Commentary on Minor Prophets. I'm writing the questions for the discussion group. The study is a huge hit this year. Best Uses: Using as bible study; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written
