This book is unique in that two-thirds of it is a conversation between the prophet and the Lord.  Habakkuk could not reconcile his belief in a good and righteous God with the conditions he observed (wickedness in Judah, and God going to use the wicked Babylonians against His people).  He was perplexed and poured out his soul to God.  God answers him with a vision which causes the prophet to rejoice.
