Wilke, Alexa F.

Berlin: de Gruyter, 2014 pp. viii + 461. $182.00

Series Information

Description: Although prayer is not regarded as one of the basic forms of prophetic tradition, prayer does arise at critical theological junctures in the prophetic books. In this work, Alexa F. Wilke explores the literary and theological functions of prayer and examines the images of self and God communicated in prayer. Her analysis contributes to our understanding of the history of the reception and perpetuation of the prophetic books as well as the nature of the theology of prayer.
