Reviews - What do customers think about Hosea-Micah (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?
Great Commentary Aug 22, 2005
This is a great commentary for teaching. I am also a satisfied this site customer.
A good, middle of the road, exposition. . . Feb 19, 2004
. . .of the first six Minor Prophets written specifically for the teacher or preacher. While not an in-depth scholarly commentary (and this is not the purpose of the series) major issues and questions concerning the reading and interpretation of these books is well-presented.
The professional student is probably going to wish to look elsewhere for more depth, but the pastor, looking for a preaching aid, or the adult Bible study facilitator will find the volume most rewarding.
