About this title

Synopsis:

The book of Joel is held to be one of the latest prophetic witnesses; it cites other books of the book of the Twelve prophets with a density that distinguishes it from its neighbours. The concept of the ""Day of the LORD"" which runs throughout the Minor Prophets as a whole reaches its zenith in Joel and its co-mingling of ecological and military metaphors advances Hosea on the former and anticipates later texts on the latter. In this volume within T&T Clark's International Theological Commentary Series Christopher Seitz starts from a foundation of historical-critical methodology to provide an account of Joel's place and purpose within the book of the Twelve prophets as a whole. Seitz examines the theology and background of Joel, and shows how Joel's theological function can provide a major hermeneutical key to the interpretation of the wider collection, and teases out the precise character of that role.

Review:

..".this is a very good volume which, standing squarely in the Christian tradition, highlights the theological value of the book of Joel ... Seitz's commentary offers a distinct theological perspective and it demands the reader's full attention." - L.-S. Tiemeyer, JESOT

"One of the most refreshing aspects of Seitz's commentary is that he makes a comprehensive argument that ties together the whole book of Joel...Seitz's contribution to the ITC series and to biblical commentary literature as a whole must be recognized. The ITC series, and Seitz's Joel commentary in particular, breathe fresh air into the commentary genre because Joel focuses on the theological content of the book. Christian leaders, scholars, and pastors will benefit from reading Seitz's volume in order to understand the theological import of Joel within the canon." - Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
