Westminster Commentary on Zephaniah, Nahum and Habakkuk

George Gordon Vigor Stonehouse [1879/80-1918] & George Woosung Wade [1858-1941], The Books of the Prophets Zephaniah, Nahum and Habakkuk with Introduction and Notes

The last of the public domain Westminster Commentaries to which I have access covers the books of Zephaniah, Nahum and Habbakkuk. This leaves only the 2 volume set on the Psalms, to which I currently have no access. My thanks to the supporter whose gift paid for the purchase of this book.

You can now access all of the available Westminster Commentaries volumes here.
