Introduction to the Prophets : Their Stories, Sayings, and Scrolls

Introduction to the Prophets : Their Stories, Sayings, and Scrolls

Description

Now in a second edition, this popular introductory text considers not only each of the prophetic books in the Hebrew Bible, but also treats the stories of prophets found in the Pentateuch and historical books. The biblical texts are approached from several different perspectives. The author places each story and prophetic book in its historical context to understand the concerns the prophets addressed in their own time. He examines literary aspects and theological significance of the texts, and finally the significance of the prophet in post-biblical traditions, especially in the Jewish and Christian lectionaries.
Among the new features:
An updated table of contents and visual aids was well as reference resources in "For Further Study."
"Questions for Review" at the end of each chapter.
A chapter on the book of Daniel.
