Most people don t know the book of Obadiah even exists, let alone what it contains. In fact, you would be hard pushed to find a Christian who could tell you anything about it. You could make a good case for Obadiah being the least among Bible books it s certainly the shortest. It isn t quoted in the New Testament and, to be honest, it isn t very quotable. But, as Andrew Thomson demonstrates throughout this practically applied commentary, we can t dismiss Obadiah as irrelevant. It warns about the approaching day of the LORD , a day that is relevant to us all. Obadiah wants us to live our lives now in light of that day: to be sobered by it, but also to be spurred on by it. To Edom that was bad news, but to us it can be good news the gospel!
