Daniel C. Timmer is the professor of biblical studies for the PhD program at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. He is an ordained ruling elder in the Reformed Church of Quebec and also serves at the Faculté de théologie évangélique in Montreal.


"The Minor Prophets have been unfortunately named since there is nothing 'minor' about them. Like Isaiah and Jeremiah and Ezekiel, they treat the same grand themes of sin, judgment, and salvation, all against a covenantal backdrop. Yet they are too often neglected. Among them, perhaps Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah are some of the most neglected. Enter Daniel Timmer's delightful short work, Judah among the Empires, which does a great job of retrieving these prophets and their messages for the modern church. Ideal for preachers and home group leaders." 
--Jonathan Gibson, associate professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
