Zondervan Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah: NIV Application Commentary [NIVAC]

The prophets Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah all spoke to a nation that had to deal with violent enemies. While Jonah took his message to the city of Nineveh, the others faced the crisis of a new power: Babylon. Eventually, the Babylonian Empire destroyed Nineveh as prophesied by Nahum, and later destroyed Jerusalem as prophesied by Habakkuk and Zephaniah. Although these four prophets come from the distant past, they still call God's people to consider what it means to be faithful when violent enemies press upon them. They offer God's hope and resources in the midst of personal and societal crises.

In Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah [NIVAC] James Bruckner draws these lessons out of the ancient context and then masterfully applies them to our own modern context wherein it seems that crisis is the state of normality. Rejecting the belief that God does not teach us through difficult times, Bruckner shows how God works in our lives at precisely the moment we think all is lost.

The author has made the characters come alive to our 8 members of women's Bible Study. We particularly like the "bridging feature" in each chapter.

Like all of the NIV Application series commentaries this one is excellent. Its format of looking at original meaning, bridging context and application makes it easy to fully understand the text.
