Review by Lindsay Kennedy
Overall Rating
This is an excerpt from my full review here:

Obadiah certainly is a gem in the Scriptures. There is a lot of wealth in such a tiny book – each verse is surprisingly dense – and Block’s Obadiah commentary will help bring this to the surface. I thoroughly enjoyed working through Obadiah in my morning reading and can recommend it for personal study, as well as for students and teachers. The Hearing the Message of Scripture series attempts – and succeeds – something unique by relentlessly focusing on the text’s flow, and I’ll certainly be eagerly awaiting the next releases (check the Zondervan catalog for the lineup). It’s time to give Obadiah the attention it deserves!

Many thanks to Zondervan for providing a copy in exchange for a review (Posted on 9/5/2014)
