Bridging the gap between technical, scholarly works, and popular devotional studies, Hailey's unique commentaries are now favorites of those who want to get quickly to the context and heart of a Bible passage.
Before proceeding with a consideration of each book, Hailey provides the reader with a general introduction to the Minor Prophets. Then each book is examined separately, with general observations (authorship, date, various interpretations, the main message, and lessons to be gained from the study). An outline for each book follows. The verse-by-verse Commentary unfolds the meaning of each passage and verse. The result is a satisfying and useful commentary, one that is often referred to for help in understanding Scripture.
