Customer Reviews for Zondervan Joel, Obadiah, Malachi, Old Testament

Zondervan Joel, Obadiah, Malachi, Old Testament

These three short prophetic books of the Old Testament each contain a dual message. On one hand are messages of impending judgmentfor all peoples on the Day of the Lord, for an enemy of Israel, and for Israel herself. On the other hand are messages of great hopeof the pouring out of God's Placing judgment and hope together in such a manner may seem paradoxical to a contemporary mindset. But the complete message of these prophets gives a fuller picture of Godwho despises and rightly judges sin and rebellion, but who also lovingly invites people to return to him so that he might bestow his wonderful grace and blessings. It is a message no less timely today than when these books were first written, and David W. Baker skillfully bridges the centuries in helping believers today understand and apply it.
