Preaching Truth for Today” is a compelling exploration of lesser-known prophets


“Major Messages from Minor Prophets: Preaching Truth for Today”: an articulate exploration of the less familiar parts of the Old Testament. “Major Messages from Minor Prophets: Preaching Truth for Today” is the creation of published author Jeffrey A. Ingraham, a loving husband and father who pastored Calvary Baptist Church, Norwalk, Connecticut, for more than thirty years. He holds graduate degrees from Yale Divinity School, New York University, and Hartford Seminary.

Ingraham shares, “In early 2019, our Sunday School lessons focused on the Old Testament prophets, especially the minor prophets. It was a great challenge to understand their messages and the relevance of the messages for our times. It seemed like there weren’t really any significant differences in these books of prophecy, as the minor prophets all seemed to be saying the same thing.

“Of course there are differences in the messages and ministries of the minor prophets, hence my attempt to show this. My objective was to summarize the writings and ministries of the minor prophets and show their relevance for today .

“Which I did through a series of sermons that were originally delivered in Calvary Baptist Church during the winter of 2019. My goal was to make the teachings of the Minor Prophets understandable to every segment of our members . The approach was more inspiring than too scholarly.

“Each chapter of the book is provocatively titled and begins with a story or illustration centered on that particular topic. The intention was to refer to something the reader could relate to and see how the prophet approaches this issue. Of course, not all details of the prophet’s message are included due to time constraints etc.

“My hope is that readers of this book will come to know God better and have a relationship with him. They will see that despite people’s imperfections, our God is perfect and faithful to us. Minor prophets challenge us to live faithfully for God.

“To the extent that I have been able to evoke this kind of response from my readers, I give all glory and honor to God.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jeffrey A. Ingraham’s new book is a compelling example of deliberate Bible study.

Ingraham hopes to encourage and inspire those who seek a deeper understanding of Scripture and a stronger connection with God.
