Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah: The NIV Application Commentary from Biblical Text-- to Contemporary Life
Zondervan, 2004 - 356 ページ
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. Jonah ran from his divine commission. Habakkuk questioned God concerning his ways. Repenting under Jonah's message, the city of Ninevah ultimately backslid and reaped the doom prophesied by Nahum. And Zephaniah's 'remnant' depicts a faith that remains faithful. We needn't look too hard to find our own world and concerns mirrored in these books.Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, James Bruckner shares perspectives on four of the Minor Prophets that reveal their enduring relevance for our twenty-first-century lives.Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable---but the job is only half done!The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. 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 was okay. Very basic, and, as one would expect from this series, more geared to the non-academic preacher. As easy as TOTC's volume on Jonah is to read, this is not quite as useful as it could ... レビュー全文を読む
