Item Description...
"Obadiah" exemplifies the classic Israelite prophetic tradition. This brief but volatile diatribe encompasses many of the great prophetic themes, such as divine judgment against Israel's enemies, the day of Yahweh, Zion theology, Israel's possession of the promised land, and the kingship of Yahweh. These themes allow "Obadiah" to transcend time and touch upon some of the modern Middle East's most controversial issues. Its harsh language and pro-Israelite zeal spark debate even today. Through his accurate translation and sympathetic interpretation of what the book meant to its original sixth-century audience, Dr. Paul R. Raabe relates the reader's modern world to that of the ancient Near East.In the revered "Anchor Bible" tradition, the commentator provides the contextual framework to make sense of "Obadiah's" cryptic and often ignored prophetic message. Drawing upon an exhaustive analysis of the books grammar and philology, literary forms and context, religious and social situation, and historical context, Dr. Raabe offers us the most informed and up-to-date commentary available. Scholars, students, clergy, and laypeople will rely on "Obadiah" for years to come.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
273 pages of commentary on 21 verses!  Feb 1, 2001
I have learned much from Dr. Raabe's fine and thorough commentary on this scant OT book. Thorough in his treatment of background and adding his own translation, this commentary seeks to unpack what the inspired 21 verses present.

Helpful was his explanation of the literary use of apostrophe, making the case for this book's real purpose: "simply unfolding and unpacking what Yahweh's future role will mean for Edom, the nations, Zion and Israel."

Knowing Dr. Raabe's theology, surprised to see absence of theological application. However, possibly editorial constraints prevent their inclusion.

For the serious Bible student.
