Publisher's Summary

The Minor Prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures are not "minor" because they are less important than the "major" prophets, but because they are shorter in length: Isaiah is 66 chapters; Obadiah is one. Nevertheless, the Minor Prophets are dazzling works that penetrate deeply into Israel's relationship with God, and by inference into our own relationship with God.

In Hosea, for example, God instructs the prophet to marry Gomer, the village whore, who will continually betray him with other men: God wants Hosea to know how God feels when Israel, God's "bride", continually betrays him. Jonah is a great "fish tale", the story of a prophet who refuses God's command to go to Nineveh (east of Israel in Assyria, northern Iraq of today), and instead boards ship for Tarshish (as far west as he can go, in Spain, the exact opposite direction!); he ends up in the belly of a great fish, who then vomits him out on dry land, back in Israel (which only goes to show, you can't keep a good man down!).

You get the picture.

For over 20 years Dr. Creasy stood among the top 2% of UCLA's teaching faculty, and in this series Dr. Creasy offers one of his famous "flagship" courses.

    "Dr. Creasy is the BEST - but, there are only 6 MPs"
    What disappointed you about The Minor Prophets?

    Dr. Creasy is as good as it gets, and nobody who loves the Word of God and Bible study will ever regret getting any of his material. That being said, this isn't actually The Minor Prophets - I only received half of them (6 of the 12).

    Story
    "Good as usual but only 6 of the Minor Prophets."

    The previous review was correct about there only being 6 of the Minor Prophets in this collection. Those books are Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Micah, and Nahum. I think it is a bit deceptive to discuss Jonah in the description and not include the book in this collection of books.
