Gregory Cook helps us to navigate the book of Nahum, a poetic masterpiece that teaches us about God’s love for his adulterous people. As the prophet Nahum shows us, God’s passionate love threatens all our other loves. When we find God boring and the world fascinating, we commit the sin of rebellion—but God, with severe compassion, refuses to abandon us when we stray into destructive paths. Ultimately, Nahum’s prophecy is fulfilled in Christ, who relentlessly pursued his people and entered history in order to redeem them for himself. Cook further aids our understanding with historical background, cultural references, literary allusions, poetic devices, and challenging application.
Gregory D. Cook has completed a PhD in hermeneutics and biblical interpretation from Westminster Theological Seminary, prior to which he was the pastor of Providence Presbyterian Church (PCA) in West Virginia and the youth and college pastor at Evangelical Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Delaware.
