An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Books

$46.99

Hardback

Follow a historical line of study through the Old Testament prophets and get a clear picture of Israel's history and sharper understanding of Old Testament prophets and prophetic literature through An Introduction to the "Old Testament Prophetic Books."



- Publisher

The Old Testament prophets spoke to Israel in times of historical and moral crisis. They saw themselves as being a part 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 are clustered with the major historical events of their time.

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.
