NICOT: Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah

NICOT: Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah

The close-knit bond between prophecy and history, according to O. Palmer
Robertson, becomes particularly clear through the study of Nahum, Habakkuk, and
Zephaniah. As the historical context of their messages is explored, it becomes
ever more apparent that biblical history - in addition to providing the context
for prophecy - actually embodies and functions as prophecy. The events that
occurred to Judah and its neighbors spoke in anticipation of world-shaking
circumstances that were yet to come. In this commentary Robertson combines the
insights of biblical theology with a keen awareness of the age in which we
live. After first dealing with the relevant background issues of Nahum,
Habakkuk, and Zephaniah - redemptive-historical setting, theological
perspective, date and authorship, and so on - Robertson applies the care
and precision of an exegete and the concern of a pastor to his verse-by-verse
exposition of each book. The result is a relevant confrontation with the
ancient call to repentance and faith - a confrontation greatly needed in
todayÉs world.
'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
'RobertsonÉs work on Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah is a
first-class theological commentary with unique applications to the present day.
His conclusions are balanced and well aimed with regard to the particulars of
the immediate historical situation as well as with regard to the overall
canonical stance of the ongoing drama of revelation. From these three orphan
books of the Old Testament Robertson has crafted a most memorable message for
the present-day church.' - Walter C. Kaiser
'Robertson has
produced an outstanding volume that treats three of the lesser-known Old
Testament prophecies. He writes in a clear style with an emphasis on the rich
theological meaning of these prophets and with a pastorÉs insight regarding
their relevance to Christians today.' - Tremper Longman
