The writings of the 12 minor Old Testament prophets were brief, yet rich in utterances concerning the Messiah. Following in the footsteps of the New Testament authors, the church fathers uncovered numerous parallels between the Gospels and the prophetic writings. Irenaeus, Basil the Great, Origen, and many others mine the wisdom and insights of these ancient texts.

Review 1 for The Twelve Prophets: Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture [ACCS]
Date:September 5, 2008
Spanning the 14 minor prophets of the Old Testament, this commentary provides the reader with a sense of the thoughts of the early Christian church fathers regarding these texts, all in a concise format. I found them to be very enlightening, as I read through the text as there was as much diversity of opinion then as there is now. I would highly recommend this commentary to anyone that would like to take a glimpse of Christian thought 1500 to 2000 year ago.
