The book deals with this question and the required response of faithful trust in God.

  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Nahum

    from Keith Mathison Apr 04, 2009 Category: Articles

    The prophetic oracles found within the seventh century B.C. book of Nahum concern Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrian empire. Approximately a century before Nahum, Jonah had been sent to the Ninevites, and they had repented upon hearing the prophetic word. Their repentance, however, was apparently short lived because Nahum now addresses a wicked and brutal empire. There are a number of helpful commentaries on the Book of Nahum, and the following are five of the best. Keep Reading

  • From Age to Age: The Unfolding of Biblical Eschatology

    from Keith Mathison Mar 26, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    Books on eschatology often focus solely on topics such as the Second Coming of Christ and the millennium. However, because the first advent of Christ inaugurated the last days, a complete study of biblical eschatology must include a study of Christ's first advent as well as his second. It must also include a study of God's preparations in redemptive history for the eschatological first advent of Christ. Keep Reading
  • The Final Word

    from Keith Mathison Mar 24, 2009 Category: Articles

    In the early part of the twentieth century, one would have been hard pressed to find a greater theological mind than that of Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921). Sadly, both he and his work are virtually unknown today outside of certain circles in the Reformed churches. During his lifetime, however, his scholarship was world-renowned. Although a great theologian, Warfield never wrote a complete systematic theology text. He did, however, write extensively on a wide range of topics, at both the popular and academic levels. His collected works fill ten volumes, and his breadth and depth of knowledge remain something to behold. One subject to which Warfield made a lasting contribution is the doctrine of Scripture. The various essays on this doctrine found in The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible (P&R Publishing, 1948) are of such quality that they have made this volume a modern-day classic. Keep Reading
  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Micah

    from Keith Mathison Mar 14, 2009 Category: Articles

    The ministry of the prophet Micah began during the reign of the Judean king Jotham (750-732) and lasted until the reign of Hezekiah (729-686). His ministry, unlike that of Amos or Hosea, overlapped the fall of the northern kingdom. He prophesied the fall of Israel and lived to witness it. Following the fall of the northern kingdom, Micah prophesied to the southern kingdom of Judah. There are a number of helpful commentaries on the book of Micah, and the following are five of the best.
