Many carry a little Bible and believe in a little God. Their Bibles are little because they ignore so many of its books. Their God is little because they ignore so many of the Bible’s truths. The Minor Prophets can help us. These men made sense of their circumstances and found strength for their challenges by basking in the the God who was above it all and in it all. The God they served was wise enough to plan and strong enough to achieve. This study of their messages will help us have both bigger Bibles and a bigger God.

"Biblical prophets were spokesmen for God. Through them the Lord revealed his Word, his will and, most notably, himself. Roger Ellsworth helps us appreciate how the so-called Minor Prophets make known the character and work of our great God. This book is a great introduction to and overview of their prophecies. Read it to become acquainted with these sometimes overlooked servants and, more importantly, with the unchangeable God whose message they proclaimed." — Tom Ascol, Director of Founders Ministries and Pastor, Grace Baptist Church, Cape Coral, Florida
"In this excellent book on the Minor Prophets, Roger Ellsworth gives the reader a clear understanding of the importance of these neglected and often underestimated books of the Bible. As the author says in his introduction, ‘These were men with a big God.’ Setting each prophet in his times, Roger Ellsworth goes on to show clearly how all of these men demonstrated the greatness of God in their message—a message as essential for our day as it was for theirs. Laced with helpful, practical application, this book shows how each prophet emphasized a particular aspect of God’s character, giving an overall picture that is compelling." — Jim Winter, Minister of Horsell Evangelical Church, Woking
