The Old Testament prophets spoke to Israel in times of historical and ^moral crisis.  They saw themselves as being apart of a story that God was weaving ^throughout history-a story of repentance, encouragement, and a coming Messiah.  ^In this updated introductory book, each major and minor prophet and his writing ^is clustered with the major historical event of his time. 


¿ The ^Neo-Assyrian prophets and the fall of the Northern Kingdom (Israel).  ^
Prophets include: Jonah, Amos, Hosea, Micah, and Isaiah


¿ The ^Neo-Babylonian prophets and of the fall on the Southern Kingdom (Judah). ^
Prophets include:  Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Jeremiah, Nahum, Ezekiel, Obadiah,
and ^Lamentations


¿ The Persian prophets and the Jewish return ^to Israel. 
Prophets include:  Daniel, Haggai, Zechariah, Joel, and ^Malachi  


Our generational distance from the age of the prophets ^might seem to be a measureless chasm. Yet we dare not make the mistake of assuming ^that passing years have rendered irrelevant not only the Old Testament prophets, ^but also the God who comprehends, spans, and transcends all time.  In these ^pages, C. Hassell Bullock presents a clear picture of some of history's most profound ^spokesmen-the Old Testament prophets-and the God who shaped them.
