Excerpt from The Mir Prophets: Exegetically, Theologically, and Homiletically Expounded The volume on the Mir Prophets is partly in advance of the German original, which has t yet reached the three post-exilian Prophets. The commentaries on the nine earlier Prophets by Professors Kleinert and Schmoller appeared in separate numbers some time ago; but for Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, Dr. Lange has t, to this date, been able to secure a suitable co-laborer. With his cordial approval I deem it better to complete the volume by original commentaries than indefinitely to postpone the publication. They were prepared by sound and able scholars, in conformity with the plan of the whole work. The volume accordingly contains the following parts, each one being paged separately: - 1. A General Introduction to the Prophets, especially the Mir Prophets, by Rev. Charles Elliott, D. D., Professor of Biblical Exegesis in Chicago, Illiis. The general introductions of Kleinert and Schmoller are too brief and incomplete for our purpose, and therefore I requested Dr. Elliott to prepare an independent essay on the subject. 2. Hosea. By Rev. Dr. Otto Schmoller. Translated from the German and enlarged by James Frederick McCurdy, M. A., of Princeton, N. J. 3. Joel. By Otto Schmoller. Translated and enlarged by Rev. John Forsyth, D.

D., Pastor of the Collegiate Reformed Dutch Church, New York. 5. Obadiah. By Rev. Paul Kleinert, Professor of Old Testament Theology in the University of Berlin. Translated and enlarged by Rev.
