Poetic Profiles of the Minor Prophets: Depicted in the Old Testament
By: Dr. Brenda L. Taggart
Writings of the minor prophets comprise a large part of the Old Testament. These prophets were referred to as minor, not in reference to the role they played, as compared to the major prophets, but the content of the book they wrote. Each prophet was called individually by God and relayed the messages God gave them. Each had their own personality and relayed their messages in their own style. They were not always popular with their messages, as they were often harsh, as they confronted people with their sins warning of their coming judgment. Poetic Profiles of the Minor Prophets: Depicted in the Old Testament, written in poetic form for more pleasurable reading, will surely entice you to open your Bible and read more about these special men.
