  Book of Joel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The book of Joel is part of the Jewish Tanakh, and also the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
Joel is part of a group of twelve prophetic books known as the Minor Prophets or simply as The Twelve; the distinction 'minor' indicates the short length of the text in relation to the larger prophetic texts known as the Major Prophets.
Joel was probably a resident in Judah, as his commission was to that people.

 JOEL, NRSV HEBREW BIBLE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Thus the book's placement between Hosea and Amos among the Minor Prophets is not chronological and is apparently based on thematic and verbal correspondences between the end of Joel and the beginning of Amos.
Joel 3.16a and Amos 1.2a are identical, and the final chapter of Joel and the initial chapter of Amos contain oracles against Tyre and Philistia.
Joel viewed a locust plague that ravaged the country — a plague that devastated both the human community and the natural world — as God's judgment on the people, and he called them to repentance (1.2-2.27).

 Book of Joel - Bible Survey
Joel symbolically describes the locusts as a marching human army and views all of this as divine judgment coming against the nation of her sins.
Joel uses these happenings as the catalyst to send words of warning to Judah that unless the people repent quickly and completely, enemy armies will devour the land as did the natural elements.
Joel appeals to all the people and the priest of the land to fast and humble themselves as they seek God's forgiveness.

 Book of Joel
The Book of Joel, a prophetic book of the Old Testament of the Bible, derives its name from the prophet Joel.
The contents of this book are, (1.) A prophecy of a great public calamity then impending over the land, consisting of a want of water and an extraordinary plague of locusts (1:1-2:11).
Although it is assumed, that Joel was the earliest of the prophets, yet the evidence is inferential rather than direct.

In a new book, 'Billy Joel: The Life and Times of an Angry Young Man', author Hank Bordowitz claims the star one drank furniture polish because it would be easier than swilling down bleach.
Before he drank it, Joel reportedly wrote a suicide note that eventually became the lyrics to 'Tomorrow Is Today'.
Joel - who was once married to supermodel Christie Brinkley - was moved to a psychiatric ward and put on suicide watch.

From this book, we can see that he was acquainted with the land, the farming and the geography.
Joel must have lived during the early Eighth Century B.C., and prophesied in Judah during the days of King Uzziah (792-740 B.C.), because he does not mention Assyria, Babylon or Persia.
So, Joel begins with the devastation of the locusts and ends with the eternal blessing of the presence of the Lord with His people forever.

 Book Reviews - Joel on Software
This book is most famous for discovering the principle that adding more programmers to an already-late project makes it later, but that's only the tip of the iceberg.
This excellent, thin book will give you a grasp of the principles behind page layout, fonts, etc. The good news is, you can read it in the bath before the water gets cold, and the next day, your dialog boxes and powerpoints and web pages will start looking better.
This book is explicitly NOT for programmers, it's for all those non-programmers who either want to become programmers, or want to understand what programmers do, or just want to explore the weird world of bits and bytes.

Joel Osteen may represent the low end of the evanglical spectrum but I'll bet that 50% of his members are from Catholic backgrounds.

 Amazon.com: Joel on Software: And on Diverse and Occasionally Related Matters That Will Prove of Interest to Software ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Joel has simplified what is told in many software engineering texts that we have already studied, only with a touch of humour that makes all those boring stuff mysteriously fascinating.
Joel presents various topics that are often brought up along the lines of design time, testing, agile methodologies, and politics and is able to distill them into many of the main issues and talk about them.
The book gives you advise on how Joel has solved many of the problems you will probably face in your career in the software development industry but it does it by trying to give you the facts and not selling a particular product or methodology.

As such, I think this is a book that will only please the programmer who likes to do minimal research and/or feels they do not have the time to devote to a better treatment of this subject.
Joel is a good writer who happens to be a programmer.
In this book, much of which is available at his site, he's taking an approach that I don't think anyone else has: why UI design matters to programmers.

The imperfection of design is the theme of October's Book of the Month.

All design is about tradeoffs, and if you don't believe me, this book offers dozens of examples from everyday life.

Joel speaks of the same judgments that Amos does: whence it is probable they appeared about the same time, Amos in Israel, and Joel in Judah.
Came to Joel - Probably in the latter end of Jeroboam the second's reign over Israel and in the days of Uzziah, over Judah.
Their blood - Their sinfulness, which before I had not taken away.

My publisher recently told me that Barnes & Noble placed a large order for my book, BYTE-ing Satire.
If you took all of the pages out of all of the copies that Barnes & Noble ordered and placed them end-to-end lengthwise they would stretch across town, assuming that you live in an exceptionally small town.
Of course, if you did that, Barnes & Noble would expect you to pay for the books.
