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.

Christians sometimes approach the Old Testament with a mixture of awe and bewilderment, knowing that it contains pearls of wisdom, but unsure how to dive for them ... especially when it comes to the Prophets. In The Message of the Prophets, author J. Daniel Hays offers a scholarly, yet readable and student-friendly survey of the Old Testament prophetic literature that presents the message of each prophet in its historical and its biblical context and then tracks that message through the New Testament to challenge readers with what it means for them today. Hays focuses on synthesizing the message of the prophets, which enables students to grasp the major contours of the prophetic books clearly and concisely. Hundreds of colorful pictures help to illustrate the historical and cultural background of the prophets. After identifying what the message meant for ancient Israel, Hays helps the readers to move toward theological application today, helping readers to gain a better understanding of God and the relationship between God and his people. The Message of the Prophets is essential for professors, students, and others seeking to understand the role that the OT prophets play in the Christian faith.

One of the most perplexing and misunderstood books of the Bible, Ezekiel has left many scholars and exegetes scratching their heads regarding its message, coherency, and interpretation. Brian Peterson's look at the book of Ezekiel as a unified whole set within an exilic context helps explain some of the more difficult symbolic aspects in the book and makes Ezekiel as a whole more intelligible. Drawing on ancient Near Eastern concepts and motifs such as covenant and treaty curses, the various gods that made up the Babylonian pantheon, and the position that Israel held as the people of Yahweh, Peterson enlightens readers by showing that Ezekiel can only be understood in its original context. By placing the book first in its historical context, Peterson demonstrates how the original hearers of its message would have understood it, and how this message can be appreciated and applied by people today as well.

Scratch beneath the surface of today’s culture and you’ll find we’re not so different from ancient Israel. True, our sophistication, mobility, and technology eclipse anything the Israelites could have imagined. Our worship is far different, to say nothing of our language and customs. Yet if the prophets Hosea, Amos, and Micah were to visit us today, we might be shocked to see how little their messages would differ from the ones they delivered 2,800 years ago. For human hearts are still the same--and so is God. Injustice, oppression, and political corruption anger him as much as ever. Apostasy still grieves him. His judgment of sin remains as fierce as his love is strong. And the hope God extends to those who turn toward him is as brilliant now as at any time in history. Revealing the links between Israel eight centuries B.C. and our own times, Gary V. Smith shows how the prophetic writings of Hosea, Amos, and Micah speak to us today with relevance and conviction.

Casi toda introducción a los libros proféticos de la Biblia se enfoca en la forma en que se componen. Sin embargo, Gary V. Smith aplica la teoría de la comunicación y la sociología del conocimiento a fin de analizar simplemente cómo la predicación de los profetas del Antiguo Testamento cambió la vida de individuos, influyó en los líderes más poderosos del mundo y logró el arrepentimiento de naciones completas. Los capítulos individuales sobre Amós, Oseas, Jonás, Miqueas, Isaías, Nahum, Sofonías, Habacuc, Jeremías, Joel, Abdías, Ezequiel, Daniel, Hageo, Zacarías y Malaquías también incluyen preguntas para conducir al diálogo sobre sus implicancias teológicas y sociales. Asimismo, el libro Los profetas como predicadores se caracteriza por diez ilustraciones, un glosario de términos, bibliografía e índices de temas y nombres. Although most introductions to the prophetic books of the Bible focus on their composition, Gary V. Smith uses communication theory and the sociology of knowledge to analyze just how the preaching of the Old Testament prophets changed individual lives, influenced the world's greatest leaders, and caused entire nations to repent. Individual chapters on Amos, Hosea, Jonah, Micah, Isaiah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Jeremiah, Joel, Obadiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi also include discussion questions concerning theological and social implications. The Prophets as Preachers also features ten illustrations, glossary of terms, bibliography, and indices of subjects and names.
