The minor prophets can be considered an interesting field of study both from an exegetical as well as a theological perspective. An international conference held at the Université de Lorraine in Metz in November 2015 was dedicated to the Book of the Twelve, and this volume contains its proceedings. The conference's principal goal was to explore the link between theory, unstated presuppositions and exegetical analysis. Two specific areas of interest were taken into consideration here: should the Book of the Twelve be read as one book, an anthology, or something else? And how should the individual texts of the minor prophets be interpreted and/or how should certain texts be analyzed? A distinctive characteristic of the conference was the interesting comparisons made by the participating authors through their exegetical presuppositions. These differing approaches and varied questions produced a diversity of answers.
