In what Rev George Curry calls a ‘twelve course feast’, John Blanchard enables us to see how these Minor Prophets reacted to the massive changes that swept through Israel and Judah in their lifetime. In the midst of corruption, we see God’s sovereignty, hatred of sin and his wonderful love. Gives a general grasp of each prophet and their main theme and message.
A simple way to introduce these studies in the Minor Prophets will be to ask and answer these questions about them: Who were they? Why are they known as ‘Minor Prophets? When and where did they live? What was their ministry? What was their message? Once we have answers to these questions we will be in a position to look at the prophets’ main themes before focusing on one specific statement made by each one of them.
‘John Blanchard has put us in his debt by presenting these prophets in their period, with the challenges they faces and the vital ministries God have them to magnify his name‘.
Rev Geoff Thomas, Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales.
‘Any book that encourages us to study the Minor Prophets has to be welcomed. Any book written by John Blanchard has to be welcomed. So this book promises to be a great treat.’
Phillip Jensen, Dean of St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney, Australia.
‘Thank you John Blanchard for this excellent resource. It is full of information, explanation and inspiration. You have whetted my appetite to dig deeper in the Minor Prophets.’
The Right Rev. Kenneth Clarke, Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh, Ireland
