Dr. Karl Menninger, a renowned psychiatrist, graduated from the Harvard Medical School with academic distinction, founded the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas, and years later wrote a best-selling book titled Whatever Became of Sin? That’s a great question. Whatever did become of sin?


Like the prophet Joel, Zephaniah’s theme is the awesome day of the Lord. He made it crystal clear why God’s judgment was near for ancient Judah, “because they have sinned against the Lord” (Zephaniah 1:17).
