"If lips and life do not agree, the testimony will not amount to much." The young Harry Ironside knew the truht of his own statement all too well. He began leading a Sunday school calss in Los Angeles at age eleven, but stopped when he realized his own need to know God more intimately. Converted at age thirteen, Ironside began to preach shortly thereafter and continued to pursue God's calling for the rest of his life. Ironside not only became a highly sought after preacher and classroom teacher, but his years of dedicated study also produced a series of highly regarded Bible commentaries. The Ironside Expository Commentary series offers concise outlines of the biblical text along with insightful and practical comments that bring out the essential truths of God's Word. This reprint of the Ironside commentaries presents the unabridged text in a newly typeset edition. A perfect resource for preaching and teaching from the English text of the Bible, these commentaries also provide the general reader with an excellent resource for personal study and spiritual growth.
The Minor Prophets is representative of Ironside's writings, a readable, enjoyable blend of sound scholarship and devotional writing.--The Baptist Bulletin (04/20/2005)
Ironside's commentaries are a standard and have stood the test of time. They are reliable and based on solid exegesis and offer practical insights into the text. Other commentaries in this series are The Minor Prophets and Revelation. New books will be forthcoming in the months ahead. These commentaries were originally published by Loizeaux Brothers. which is no longer in business. Kregel is doing pastors and teachers a great service in reprinting these books for us.-- (06/01/2005)
"I am glad to recommend this volume on the Minor Prophets. It was very helpful to me in my early days of ministry in trying to bring understanding to my people on the wonderful truths of these men of God and their ministry to God's chosen people. When you study the Minor Prophets, have Ironside by your side."-- (11/08/2005)
