Description: The book of Habakkuk (one of the twelve Minor Prophets) is an intensely personal testimony played out against a highly political backdrop. Written as the land of Habakkuk and his fellow Israelites was being invaded and plundered by a rival nation, the Chaldeans, it questions God's actions with a passion equal to Job's. Habakkuk wonders, how can a God who is just, compassionate, and kind allow his people to be slaughtered? In trying to punish the Israelites and right the wrongs of his people, why did God choose the savage, infinitely more wicked Chaldeans as his instrument? The puzzles Habakkuk contemplates will stir the hearts and minds of anyone who has ever wrestled with the existence of evil.

Francis I. Andersen, a well-known authority on the Minor Prophets and acclaimed for his pioneering work in the poetics of the Bible, examines Habakkuk both as a work of sophisticated theological inquiry and as an artistic creation. The result is a book that illuminates the nuances of the text and brings to life the culture and values of the ancient Israelites through a compelling portrait of one of the Bible's most fascinating and most elusive prophets.
