Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


In this book, John Calvin provides an engaging commentary on three Minor Prophets in the Old Testament: Joel, Amos, and Obadiah. Calvin begins his commentary on each book with a short introduction. When commenting on a book, he frequently offers his own translations of a passage, explaining the subtleties and nuances of his translation. His treatment of the text reveals his keen pastoral insights. And as always, he interacts with other theologians, commentators, and portions of the Bible when interpreting a particular passage. After several hundred years, Calvin's Commentary on Joel, Amos, and Obadiah remains an instructive and interesting commentary to several Old Testament books.
