This fantastic study of wrath in the O.T. is a compelling must-read for every lay person. Bruce Baloian's expertise on the history of Israel makes this book a truly unparalleled resource for the Sunday school teacher as well as the beginning Bible student.

A compelling book written with such intrinsic detail that you will be amazed of the author's intellect. If that were not enough the ending is so shocking that you will be running to the bookstore to find more works by this author.
