English Translation: Each Prophet’s commentary has its own preface. The prefaces have been translated and summarized by W.H. Fremantle, “Prefaces to the Commentaries on the Minor Prophets” in NPNF2, vol. 6 (New York, 1893), pp. 501-02.
Notes: Though these commentaries eventually circulated as a unit, they were composed separately. They were produced in a somewhat haphazard order, because they were written at the behest of friends, and shorter books were sometimes undertaken when he had little time for writing (Kelly, p. 163).
