The Book of Habakkuk is the eighth book of the 12 minor prophets of the Bible. It is attributed to the prophet Habakkuk, and was probably composed in the late 7th century BC. Of the three chapters in the book, the first two are a dialog between Yahweh and the prophet. The message that "the just shall live by his faith" (2:4) plays an important role in Christian thought

God answers Habakkuk’s questions, resulting in continuing faith in God’s wisdom, sovereignty, and salvation. Brief Summary: The Book of Habakkuk begins with Habakkuk crying out to God for an answer to why God’s chosen people are allowed to suffer in their captivity (Habakkuk 1:1-4).

God answers Habakkuk’s questions, resulting in continuing faith in God’s wisdom, sovereignty, and salvation. The Lord gives His answer to Habakkuk, essentially stating, You wouldn’t believe it if I told you (Habakkuk 1: 5-11).

The book of Habakkuk is a compilation of the prophet's laments, not an accusation . Throughout the book, we see that Babylon is an example of any nation that exalts itself above God and practices injustice, violence and idolatry.

The book of Habakkuk is a compilation of the prophet's laments, not an accusation against Israel and its sin or a message to the people on God's behalf like some of the other prophetic books. Instead, Habakkuk questions God's goodness because he sees so much injustice, evil and tragedy in the world. He's also concerned because God plans to send Babylon, an intensely evil nation, to judge Israel. When will your justice be done? Throughout the book, we see that Babylon is an example of any nation that exalts itself above God and practices injustice, violence and idolatry
