Introduction to the Prophets

Old Testament
  • By Paul L. Redditt
Product Description

Introduction to the Prophets is a helpful guide to reading the prophetic books for the Christian canon, discussing the Major and Minor Prophets in the canonical order.  It is intended to introduce modern readers to the ancient books.
Paul Redditt assumes little or no prior knowledge of the prophets on the part of the reader.   For example, when he introduces technical terms, he takes care to define them and includes a glossary  for complete reference.  Each chapter discusses
    The place of each book in the canon.
    The literary setting of each book.
    Their structure, integrity, and authorship.
    The main genre(s) in each
    Special features of each book.
    Basic emphasis of each book.
    Problems ---theological, literary, or historical -- raised..
Redditt eschews reviews questions at the end of the chapters, instead offering questions for further reflection.  Introduction to the Prophets also includes three chapters discussing the nature of prophecy, methods developed by scholars to use in studying the Bible, the rise of the "Book of Twelve," and the approach taken to them here.
