Nahum, Habakkuk and Zephaniah
David W. Baker
Nahum’s prophecy of Nineveh’s coming destruction. Habakkuk’s probing dialogue with the Lord of Israel. Zephaniah’s warning to Jerusalem’s last great king.
The texts of these minor but important prophets receive a fresh and penetrating analysis in this introduction and commentary. David. W. Baker considers each book’s historical setting, composition, structure, and authorship, as well as important themes and issues. Each book is then expounded passage by passage in a concise and informative style.
