Hosea to Micah

A Bible commentary for every day

Content

The six prophetic books that run from Hosea to Micah make a distinctly odd collection, from the well-known and serious prophetic writings of Hosea and Amos to Jonah, a light-hearted story of prophetic disaster. Then there is Obadiah, a book that most people would struggle to find, and know hardly anything about. So what connects them all?

Although the texts come from different times, different places and different prophets, they tell the same story. It is the story of the roller-coaster ride of God's relationship with his people, a story that looks back to God's action in the past and forward to what he will do in the future, in order to make sense of what is happening in the present. Throughout it all is the pulsing theme of God's great and abiding love for his people, and also his concern for other nations and how they relate to his plan for history.
