If you want to memorise the names of the Minor Prophets in the right order, think of them as a football team:-
Hosea (HOS) is Head of Side
Joel is in goal
Amos and Obadiah (Alpha and Omega) are the two full-backs
Jonah, Micah and Nahum (the three five-letter prophets) are the half-backs
And finally, playing in an HZHZM formation are the five forwards – Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.
I picked this up form the spoken ministry of Jonathan Fletcher. Try it – it works!
