The Old Testament Prophets by H. L. Ellison (Zondervan, Grand Rapids, 1966, 160 pages, $1.95) is a study guide to the Hebrew prophets. On each book of the prophets is given an outline, historical background, and a brief section-by-section coverage of the material. Concerning the problem of unfulfilled prophecy, the author says that it can be explained neither “by referring the fulfillment to the Millennium,” nor “by spiritualizing the prophecy and referring it to the church.” According to Ellison, prophecies are conditional; thus, unfulfilled prophecies have been annulled or suspended because of disobedience or repentance depending on the nature of the prophecy. This approach is incorrect, yet the book would be of some value for background on the prophets.

The Thessalonian Epistles by John F. Walvoord (Zondervan, Grand Rapids, 1958, 158 pages, paper, $1.95) is a practical presentation of the precious truths of I and II Thessalonians. With the growing interest in predicted future events, this book should find immediate acceptance. This book would serve as a good text for personal devotions or for a home Bible study.
