Item description for Twelve Prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah: Volume 1 (Daily Study Bible Series) by Peter C. Craigie & John C. L. Gibson...
The Twelve Prophets offer a panoramic view of Israel's religion during one of the most critical periods in the nation's history. From the false confidence at the time of the monarchy, to the despair during the Exile, and finally to the period of new hopes and aspirations after the Exile, these books provide an understanding of the transition from an old state religion to the birth pangs of a newly formed community of God's people. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah are the figures considered in this first of Peter C. Craigie's two-volume work.

Reviews - What do customers think about Twelve Prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah: Volume 1 (Daily Study Bible Series)?
In William Barclay's Footsteps Feb 23, 2007
For those familiar with William Barclay's excellent NT commentaries these follow in that same pattern. In a simple, yet surprisingly comprehensive, manner they explain the purpose, meaning, and application to our lives of biblical texts. These are valuable resources for clergy and lay persons alike. I heartily recommend this series and this volumne in particular.
Good for applying the minor prophets to today Dec 30, 2004
According to Andrew Hill and John Walton, this is "insightful theological analysis and contemporary application" of the prophets' messages. This commentary series can be hit and miss regarding rigorous scholarship, but the work on the 12 prophets seems to be better than some of the other volumes. Note that this is a two volume set to get all 12 prophets. On Zechariah the commentary does a good job with eschatology.
A Practical, Scholarly, and Devotional Commentary Mar 21, 2003
This commentary covers the last 7 of the minor prophets. It and its companion volume 1 (on the first 5 minor prophets) are a splendid help for anyone who wants to read these prophets as God's word for us. Craigie gives us the historical background for the books and relates them to our lives today. The commentary is full of pithy observations worth remembering. These volumes are more interestingly written and useful than several of the other volumes of the Old Testament Daily Study Bible that I have used.
