NICOT: The Books of Joel, Obadiah, Jonah and Micah

NICOT: The Books of Joel, Obadiah, Jonah and Micah

The eloquent and uncompromising calls for social righteousness by some of
the Minor Prophets are familiar to many, yet the writings themselves are
probably the least studied and least known texts of the Old Testament. Those
who are familiar with these books are also aware of the historical and literary
problems that plague their study. Drawing on insights from various
perspectives - theological, historical, and literary - this
commentary on Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah by Leslie Allen carefully and
imaginatively reconstructs the stage on which the message of these four books
was conveyed to their Hebrew hearers and shows what relevance, in turn, they
hold for contemporary Christians. For each of the books there is a substantial
introduction in which the full range of scholarly opinion is presented and
assessed, a select bibliography, the authorÉs own translation of the
text - a significant contribution to biblical studies in itself - and
an extensive commentary. The commentary on Micah is the basic one of these four
in that it treats at greater length some of the same forms and motifs that
appear in Joel, Obadiah, and Jonah. The introductory material for Joel includes
discussions of canonicity and textual criticism that apply to the entire
volume.
'In the Old Testament we read GodÉs word as it was spoken to his
people Israel. Today, thousands of years later, we hear in these thirty-nine
books his inspired and authoritative message for us.' These twin convictions,
shared by all of the contributors to The New International Commentary on
the Old Testament, define the goal of this ambitious series of
commentaries. For those many modern readers who find the Old Testament to be
strange and foreign soil, the NICOT series serves as an authoritative guide
bridging the cultural gap between todayÉs world and the world of ancient
Israel. Each NICOT volume aims to help us hear GodÉs word as clearly as
possible.
