Scripture Scholar James L. CrenshawCaptures The Ominous, Yet Hopeful Spirit Of Joel'sProphecy In His New Translation AndCommentary.
Joel's Prophecy has an unexpectedly familiarring to it. The biblical book of Joel is relevant toour late-twentieth-century world because itconfronts an age when people tolerated almost anything,did not want someone telling them how to livetheir lives, and had difficulty distinguishing rightfrom wrong. It was at once a time ofself-indulgence and a time of spiritual decay. The economic andpolitical disparity of the day, combined withwidespread social injustice and deviant religiouspractices, brought about God's judgment on his chosenpeople, the judahites. Pleading the litany of sinsin Joel is like reading the newspaper, things havenot changed much in 2,500 years. Leading Scripturescholar James L. Crenshaw's fresh translation ofthe biblical prophecy of Joel combines the latestresearch into Hebrew language and literature withdown-to-earth insights into how Joel's words relateto the modern world. Drawing upon a thoroughanalysis of the book's grammar and philology, literaryforms and context, religious and social situation,and historical setting, Crenshaw offers the mostinformed and up-to-date commentary available. Forthose who want to read and understand Joel, thisbook is indispensable.
