The words of Old Testament prophetic messages have remained the same over millennia---but our understanding of them has changed profoundly. Summarizing and analyzing 50 years of scholarly work, Westermann points up astonishingly different conceptions of prophecy in its history of interpretation. He also introduces some of the major problems in contemporary prophecy studies. Translated by Hugh C. White. 240 pages, paper from Westminster.
The prophetic message awakens the people of God and calls them back from their perverse ways. But the history of the investigation of prophecy shows that the understanding of these messages has changed profoundly over time. Claus Westermann provides indications of the astonishing differences in the conceptions of prophecy in the history of its interpretation.
Claus Westermann was Professor of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. He authored a number of books, including Praise and Lament in the Psalms, Roots of Wisdom, and Prophetic Oracles of Salvation in the Old Testament, all published by WJK.
