Habakkuk

Author – Habakkuk
Time – 620 to 605 B.C.

Summary – The book begins with Habakkuk complaining of injustice in Judah and with his inability to understand Godís failure to judge the wicked and morally deprived nation of Babylon. Habakkuk is shown that Godís people must continue to trust in His mercy regardless of the circumstances about them. The wicked appear to prosper while the righteous are chastened. However, this prosperity of the wicked is only temporary. God will not abandon those who obey and follow His commandments – "the just shall live by faith" (Cp. Psalm 73).
