Review of Nahum

The book of Nahum was a very short book in the Bible consisting of only three chapters. Nahum is a minor prophet in the Bible and tells the story of God coming back to protect the people of invading armies. Of course, God could step in and provide peace at any time, but he doesn’t. He allows harm to take place.

The book of Nahum is the perfect example of one ‘saving the day’ by putting out the fire the same one intentionally started. God has brought war and destruction to the land by his hand and now says he’s going to bring peace. Sorry God, too little, too late. Along the way of bringing this ‘peace’, innocent children and babies are killed. This book directly states that babies were dashed to pieces on the streets.

A moral God? Nope. Not in the least.
