Nahum was one of the toughest books that I’ve ever had to preach. First of all, it was really tough to understand initially. And then once I understood the book, it was crazy difficult to try to put into words for the teens. Nahum might sound like a pansy name, but the book is extremely intense. Its themes are God’s judgment, wrath, jealousy, and vengeance on sin and sinners. God says things in this one book that will make you wonder if you’re reading the Bible and if you’re actually believing in the right God. He goes all out on His description of hatred, and He opens up a can on the Assyrians. Check this out!
