Prophets

Megan Mckenna

$48.99

Paperback
The prophets of old -- Moses, Elijah, Amos, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Job and others -- were truth-tellers who announced God's will. Sometimes strangely dressed, other times seemingly mad, their attention was riveted on the time and troubles in which they lived. Curiously enough, the troubles of yesterday are also the troubles of today: poverty and injustice, idolatry and abuse of power.

We often search among different spiritualities for guidance on how to lead our lives and how to find that kernel of truth, forgetting that all were originally derived from Scripture -- the words of Scripture pronounced by the prophets and then again by Jesus, the last prophet. Drawing on Scripture and a treasure house of stories, especially from the Jewish tradition, McKenna breathes life into the prophets and opens their messages to us.
