By Warner M. Bailey,Thomas W. Currie

Twenty-first century Christians dwell in diaspora, purely one voice between many, with no having fun with their once-privileged position in society. this is often fairly the case if you fight to be a church that mirrors the capaciousness of God's grace. we're assaulted through the venting of pent-up furies, that are stoked through profound anxieties over the lack of a loved worldview and worry approximately an unacceptable yet unstoppable destiny. often, we fight to talk an actual notice of God amidst the cross-talk of many voices. This book--a canonical research of Hosea via Malachi, known as jointly The publication of the Twelve--describes a biblical version of trustworthy talking below related situations. It publications response to this loss towards excessive engagement with Scripture and theology that allows you to experience back the which means of talking what's on the center of religion, God's unalterable dedication to carrying on with faithfulness with us.

"An updated and interesting presentation of the Twelve from the point of view of modern scholarship. the writer unlocks an perspective of imaginative and prescient that feeds without delay into theological and pastoral software, and he does so with strength and readability. This stability is what makes for this type of robust contribution to theological exegesis for our day. hugely recommended."
--Christopher R. Seitz, Senior study Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Wycliffe university, college of Toronto

"Bailey has composed a quick yet enticing apology for the importance of The ebook of the Twelve for a church this day that reveals itself alienated and in crisis. Drawing on fresh biblical scholarship that perspectives the Twelve as an meant team spirit, Bailey indicates how 'embedded speech' during this corpus is the main to unlocking its theological relevance. may possibly function a superb supplementary seminary textbook for a direction at the (Minor) Prophets, outdated testomony Theology, or Hermeneutics."
--Mark Sneed, Professor of Bible, Lubbock Christian University

"More than a bit of heady biblical scholarship at the prophets, Bailey deals a real contribution to the theological-ethical interpretation of Scripture that pastors and students curious about the lives of groups of religion will do good to take care of. Out of his research of the Twelve, Bailey articulates one of those piety for modern congregations to undertake in the course of a global that has obvious the Christian church's privileged cultural place disappear."
--Timothy J. Sandoval, Brite Divinity School
