Old Testament Prophecy: Stories of the Biblical Prophets, including Amos, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Haggai and Zechariah (Hardcover)
Biblical scholar Frank Knight Sanders provides a timeline and examination of the Hebrew prophets who appeared in the Old Testament. Spanning hundreds of years of Bible history, this book distinguishes and clarifies the messages of individual prophets. Beginning with Amos the Herdsman, the first prophet to appear following the reign of King David and King Solomon, Sanders examines a variety of prophetic messengers. The catalyst for their emergence, what they foretell precisely, and how they influenced their society, are recurring topics treated in each chapter. Intended as a foundational text upon which students of the Bible can base their later teachings, this manual provides an organized approach to prophecy. The generations of Israelite prophets, and the various substance of their words to the Hebrew community, are explained with clarity. The narrative constantly refers to the Bible books, citing chapter and verse, that the reader may gain insight.
