Known Intimately, Loved Ultimately
(Vol 1 - The Assyrian Period)
God's Pursuit of His People Through the Twelve Prophets
An invasion of locusts, three days in a huge fish, a good marriage gone bad ...
... are just a few of the things you’ll find in the eighth-century prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Jonah, and Micah). They deal with religious formalism, oppression of the poor, and what God really wants from His people. Most of all, they reveal a God who is not willing to give up on His purposes for them or the rest of the world.
This is the first volume of a two-volume work on what Israel and the early church referred to as the Twelve Prophets. We know them as the Minor Prophets, and they have some major truths for our lives today. This book can help you explore their richness and depth.
