  • I am thoroughly enjoying learning more about the Old Testament prophets.

  • This course is very informative.

  • An excellent course in five of the minor prophets. The themes and sections of each book are very well outlined. The excursus on archaeology in the toughest portion, but it can be mastered with repeated reading. It probably is meant to provide impetus and suggestions for further personal research on areas of interest after this course. A course to be recommended highly.

  • I had never studied the Prophets as I have in this course. What a depth of knowledge of God but also a lot of warning. Oh the Love of God is so rich. I thank the Lord for the gift of salvation. I’ve been reminded that I have nothing to fear because I’m in Christ.

    — Diana, United States (US)
  • I enjoyed studying these minor prophets and learning about the themes of these books. I gained an understanding of how these themes and lessons related to God's people in Old Testament times as well as how these themes and lessons apply to our lives today. I appreciated the added bonus of the introduction to biblical archaeology and how it contributes to our overall understanding of the Old Testament.
