    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.

    The prophets of the Old Testament were many things, and often evoked different reactions from people. But one thing they certainly were not is BORING. In fact, some of the most vivid and engaging writing you’ll find in the entire Bible is found in one of the most overlooked sections of the Bible: the Books of the Minor Prophets. They spoke to the Israelite nation – using sometimes harsh rhetoric to implore a wayward people to return to God. At first blush, you might perceive their words as being out-of-date and lacking relevance for today’s world. But, if you take time to dig deeper, you’ll find that is far from the truth. God’s word is a Living Word and the messages that hit home with people centuries ago can still hold relevance for us today. In fact, we believe you’ll be surprised by how timely their words are for today’s world.
