The Hebrew Prophets: An Introduction
Lundbom, Jack R.

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2010 pp. xii + 258. $24.00


Description: Noting that the legacy of the prophets remains a powerful element in contemporary society, Jack R. Lundbom explores the contours of prophetic speech in ancient Israel. He surveys the elements of each prophet's message, describes the characteristics of prophetic rhetoric and symbolic behavior, and discusses the problem of authenticity: how did individuals make the claim to speak as prophets, and how did their audiences recognize their claims? The Words of the Prophets offers an authoritative introduction to the phenomenon of ancient prophetic speech for the contemporary reader - and hearer.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Literature
