In the last two decades, research on the Book of the Twelve has shown that this corpus is not just a collection of twelve prophetic books. It is rather a coherent work with a common history of formation and, based upon this, with an overall message and intention. The individual books of the Book of the Twelve are part of a larger whole in which they can be interpreted in a fruitful manner.

The Book of the Twelve: Composition, Reception, and Interpretation offers a state-of-the-art compendium, which explores different aspects regarding the formation, interpretation, and reception of the Book of the Twelve as a literary unity. It contains thirty essays on the Book of the Twelve in four parts: 1. General Topics; 2. Issues in Interpretation; 3. Textual Transmission and Reception History; and 4. The Theology of the Book of the Twelve. This is the ninth volume in the series Formation and Interpretation of Old Testament Literature (FIOTL), which appears in the Supplements to Vetus Testamentum (VTSup). The purpose of the FIOTL series is to explore the prehistory, contents, and themes of the books of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, along with their transmission and reception in Jewish and Christian traditions.

The editors wish to thank several people. First, we offer sincere thanks to all the contributors to the volume: the high quality of this compendium is entirely due to their scholarly insight and diligence. Secondly, we are strongly indebted to Dr Amy Erickson, University of Aberdeen, who painstakingly improved the English language of the contributions, Dorothea Julia von Böhlen, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, who did much of the formal editing of the volume, Desiree Zecha and Mona Bürger, Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, who compiled the indices, and Markus Hauff, Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, who compiled the List of Abbreviations. Thirdly, we express our deep gratitude to Prof. Christl M. Maier and Prof. Craig A. Evans for their enthusiastic acceptance of this volume and their continuous support of the FIOTL volumes. Finally, we are most grateful to the team at Brill Academic Publishers, including Liesbeth Hugenholtz and Dirk Bakker, for their guidance and assistance in guiding this project to production.
