Berit Olam - The Twelve Prophets Volume One

Volume one of  a two-volume set that is a literary commentary of the book of the Twelve Prophets. Building upon the author's previous work on the structure and literary coherence of the book of Isaiah, it attempts to read the book of the Twelve as a distinctive literary work with its own structure, themes, and theological or ideological perspective. In addition, it treats each of the twelve minor prophets as a literacy entity unto itself as well as a component unit of the larger book of the Twelve.

Volume One features:
Hosea
Joel
Amos
Obadiah
Jonah

"Incline your ear, and come to me;
listen, so that you may live.
I will make with you an everlasting covenant."
-Isaiah 55:3

As they have for centuries, people still turn to the Hebrew Bible to hear afresh the life-giving words of God's everlasting covenant. Berit Olam ("The Everlasting Covenant"): Studies in Hebrew Narrative and Poetry brings to all interested in the Bible, be they lay people, professional biblical scholars, students, or religious educators, the latest developments in the literary analysis of these ancient texts.

This multi-volume commentary reflects a relatively new development in biblical studies. The readings of the books of the Hebrew Bible offered here all focus on the final form of the texts, approaching them as literary works, recognizing that the craft of poetry and storytelling that the ancient Hebrew world provided can be found in them and that their truth can be better appreciated with a fuller understanding of that art.

The authors reflect a variety of religious traditions, professional backgrounds, and theoretical approaches. Yet they share a common desire to make available to all of God's people the words of the everlasting covenant in all of their beauty.
