Item description for Habakkuk: A New Translation With Introduction and Commentary (Anchor Yale Bible) by Francis Andersen...

The book of Habakkuk (one of the twelve Minor Prophets) is an intensely personal testimony
played out against a highly political backdrop. Writing as his land and his fellow Israelites were being invaded and plundered by the Chaldeans, Habakkuk questions God's actions with a passion equal to Job's. Habakkuk wonders, how can a God who is just and compassionate allow his people to be slaughtered? In trying to punish the Israelites and right the wrongs of his people, why did God choose the savage, infinitely more wicked Chaldeans as his instrument? The puzzles Habakkuk contemplates will stir the hearts and minds of anyone who has ever wrestled with the evils of existence. Francis I. Andersen, a well-known authority on the Minor Prophets and acclaimed for his pioneering work in the study of biblical Hebrew, examines Habakkuk both as a work of sophisticated theological inquiry and as an artistic creation. The result is a book that illuminates the nuances of the text and brings to life the culture and values of the ancient Israelites through a compelling portrait of one the Bible's most fascinating and most elusive prophets.

Reviews - What do customers think about Habakkuk: A New Translation With Introduction and Commentary (Anchor Yale Bible)?

Welcome, but could be better  Oct 4, 2001
Habakkuk is probably the most neglected book in the Bible. It is very hard to find any decent full-length commentary on it. Thus this book fills a gap in the market. However, it cannot be given an unqualified welcome. Most of the information you might hope to find is here, but the organisation is poor and the writing diffuse, making it very hard to find anything. This is particularly true of textual criticism, where a concise display of the evidence similar to that in the Word Bible Commentary series, would be welcome. Anyone interested in the Minor Prophets will have to buy this book, but may still feel unsatisfied.
