Joel may be the earliest of the writing prophets; if he is, then he introduces the term ´´the Day of the Lord” as a reference to a set of final, catastrophic events that will befall Israel—and indeed all humanity in the ´´end times.” Illustrating his message with reference to a dreadful locust plague that occurred in the past, we shudder as God makes clear that if Israel does not repent something much greater than a locust plague will occur. Follow along as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy casts this book’s imagery in living color and Dolby® sound on the big screens of our mind’s eye, compelling us to understand the dire message of this unique prophet. 1.

The genre of Joel is Narrative and Prophetic Oracle. The prophet Joel wrote it around 841-835 B.C. sometime before the fall and exiles of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms. Key personalities are Joel and the people of Judah. Its purpose was to call the Southern Kingdom to repentance or prepare for the coming judgment. Joel describes the locust that inflicts severe damage to everything in their paths, and warns that it is only the beginning of what is to come. Christopher Glyn became a Christian at the age of 21, giving up a promising theatrical career in the U.K. to engage in full time missionary work. In the 35 years since then, he has been very active in the field of Christian radio, primarily on the Asia and African continents. ´´For years it has been my dream to record an audio version of the Holy Bible, combining my training as an actor with my love for God´s Word. I am happy now to have the opportunity to do so. I started the very long process of recording the Bible 3 years ago and by the summer of 2011, the entire Bible was finished. I pray with my whole heart that these readings will be a blessing and an inspiration to many.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Glyn.
