Overview

Neither Habakkuk nor Zephaniah is very well known or understood by our generation. These Old Testament prophets, who were contemporary with Jeremiah, interpreted events leading up to the total destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian “king of kings and lord of lords,” in 597 and 587 B.C.

Writing from within a Socialist society, Mária Eszenyei Széles offers a unique perspective on Habakkuk and Zephaniah—a profoundly moving interpretation of the mystery of God’s apparent absence or weakness when his own people meet with intolerable suffering at the hands of a cruel totalitarian regime.
