Joel, Amos, Obadiah - FINLEY, Thomas J.

Moody, 1990, Hardback (Laminated Boards).
Condition: Very Good.

In the “The Wycliffe Exegetical Commentary” series. From the preface; “The prophet Joel speaks of a day of unparalleled blessing and judgment. Two events occupy centre stage in the book of Joel: a great plague of locusts and the Day of the Lord. The prophet Amos speaks to people who were religious but who were not righteous. He focuses on the unjust practices of the rich and powerful against the poor and helpless in Israelite society. Obadiah tells a story of double betrayal. The nation of Edom, which should have been an ally, betrayed Judah when the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem in 586 B.C. As punishment the Lord promises that Edom will likewise fall prey to a trap by its allies.”
