Isaiah, Jeremiah (and his Lamentations), Ezekiel, and Daniel were the radicals of their generation who spoke from what they knew of God and his revealed will. Their message is one of hope amid dark times. They exposed the sinful practices of the people, they called the people back to the law of God, they warned of coming judgment, and they anticipated the coming Messiah.
The Open Your Bible Commentary was written to encourage daily Bible study. Each reading is short, but the content is rich with careful explanation, devotional warmth, and practical relevance. More than 200 daily readings let you explore the writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel in depth.
The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths:
* Accessible – it’s written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial.
* Digestible – it’s written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks.
* Dependable – it’s written by an amazing group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers.
* Practical – it’s a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance.
The commentary for each of these five prophetic books is introduced by an overview, summary, outline, key themes, and relevance of that book for today.
