I finished this book after a break of about a month since I had last read from it. As I picked it up and leafed through to my bookmark, I couldn't remember a thing about this book.

While Dr. Chisholm enjoys teaching the full breadth of Old Testament Studies, he takes special delight in the major and minor prophets. He can take the intricacies of those books and communicate them for marketplace use, as evidenced in his published texts on the prophetic literature. Dr. Chisholm recently published Handbook on the Prophets. He was the translation consultant for the International...more
