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 is volume one of a two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the Minor Prophets that integrates rigorous scholarship with accessible writing. Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he also relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life.
