The twelve prophets we call “minor”—because their books are shorter—worked in the most turbulent times of Israel’s history. Imperial powers, from what is now Iraq and Iran, posed overwhelming threats. But even more threatening to Israel’s existence were idolatry and injustice. And the final word would be God’s. We will survey these prophets in their historical contexts and hear their words today.

Ben Ollenburger taught six years at Princeton Seminary and after 31 years of being a professor of biblical theology at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. He retired in December 2018.
