Title: BOOK OF THE TWELVE PROPHETS, THE
This is a new translation of the portion of the Hebrew bible known as the Book of the Twelve Prophets, or the Twelve "minor" Prophets. In the Bible, the books of the Prophets are arranged in rough order of length. The present group of writings thus appears after the so-called "major" prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel) and includes the much shorter terxts of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk. Zechariah, Zephaniah, Haggai, and Malachi. David Slavitt's brilliant modern translation breathes fresh life into these powerful ancient texts.
