Habakkuk

Perhaps you've never given the minor prophets much thought, but hopefully our current series will challenge you to give them another look. Though written long ago, their messages are relevant today. Check out some of these resources to learn more!

A set of two inspirational commentaries on the message of the Minor Prophets. Respected preacher James Montgomery Boice discusses the life and works of each prophet, starting with Hosea and ending with Malachi.
The prophetic books Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah are brief but powerful. They comfort us with the assurance that, when nothing in this life makes sense, God is still in control. They toughen our faith in the face of the world’s ugly realities. And they reveal the complexities of humans in relation to God. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. It explains not only what the Bibles meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
This commentary covers the last seven books of the minor prophets, Micah through Malachi. It features a thorough going exegesis of all biblical passages, with an eye to the needs of the contemporary interpreter. As you use this commentary, you will no doubt be impressed with Dr. Walter C. Kaiser's breadth of learning and able skill as an exegete. You will also appreciate his application of the text to our challenges today. This volume will help the modern communicator of the Bible to understand and to convey the message of the last seven minor prophets.

For centuries people have been tormented by one question above all - `If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?' And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it?The greatest Christian thinker of our time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C.S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungry for a true understanding of human nature.
This very personal anguished story of the death of Lewis's wife is reissued with a foreword by Madeleine L'Engle. The celebrated author shares an intense account of the meaning of death with wit and insight.

Whether used for devotions, preaching, or teaching, this authoritative and thought-provoking series will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
