Joel, Nahum, and Malachi

A Pastoral and Contextual Commentary

£10.99

The three prophets – Joel, Nahum, and Malachi – speak to the challenges of their own day. Joel, following a locust plague, confronts the people of a bigger impending catastrophe that they could avoid if they return to God with prayers. As such, amid pain, he offers hope. Nahum depicts the wrath of God against an oppressive country. Although God is slow to anger, he will pursue his justice against oppressors. This instills faith in troubled times as God is, forever, the refuge to his people. Malachi calls the people to honor the unchanging God who continues to care for them, even if they have fallen short in many ways. To honor God means knowing and walking with him in words and in deeds. Serving him is a great privilege. He will refine those who are serving him with his divine unwavering love.

The Asia Bible Commentary Series empowers Christian believers in Asia to read the Bible from within their respective contexts. Holistic in its approach to the text, each exposition of the biblical books combines exegesis and application. The ultimate goal is to strengthen the Body of Christ in Asia by providing pastoral and contextual exposition of every book of the Bible.
