When you think about the Minor Prophets, what concepts come to mind? Judgement? Condemnation? Chastisement? What about Mercy, Hope, and Salvation? This week on the podcast, we’ve got our expanded CMOW Episode for the Month of August! Join Andrew and Ben as they discuss the books of Jonah, Amos, and a portion of Psalms, and examine one of the key themes of the Minor Prophets: a glimmer of hope, even in the face of judgement. Topics this week include fish and whales, the size of Nineveh, and more! That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!
