Month 31 - Obadiah

September sees us tackling the shortest book in the Hebrew Bible - Obadiah. A good time to take a week off? No sir-ee. For a start, you will probably never ever here someone talk about this book ever again. For a second, it gives us a chance to get really up close to a book, in a way that we can't even with the shorter books.

In terms of resources, again, I'll be using James Limburg's and Peter C. Craigie's commentaries. I'm also planning to use Douglas Stuart's commentary on it (he of "How To Read The Bible For All It's Worth" fame). Whether we'll manage to get to the bottom of why Obadiah is even in the Bible, time alone will tell.

Anyway, it all kicks off on Monday 28th September - 7:30pm at 41 Linden Road. Hopefully see you there.
