WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS SERIES?
“Written at a thoughtful but popular level.” —D. A. Carson
“Like manna in the desert.” —Sinclair Ferguson
“A tremendous resource.” —Tim Keller
“An important series.” —Philip Graham Ryken
With dramatic, vivid detail, the poetic masterpiece of Nahum shows that God refuses to abandon his rebellious people when they stray into destructive paths—instead responding to spiritual adultery with love and power. The application to our own lives may hit close to home, but there is also abundant gospel hope: Jesus’ severe compassion leads him to relentlessly pursue his people for their salvation.
As he explores the prophet’s message, Gregory Cook aids our understanding of Nahum with historical background on its cultural references, literary allusions, and poetic devices, making this book a useful resource for pastors and Bible study leaders as well as laypeople.
“Greg . . . has done the hard work of digging into the Hebrew text; he has gleaned insights from scholars and learned about the world and time in which Nahum wrote; he has sat with and listened carefully and humbly to the text; he has seen and appreciated how it speaks about and points to Jesus.”
