Product Description

Exploring the Old Testament Volume 4: Prophets aims to help students study the Prophets. Like other volumes in the EOT and ENT series, it is intended to give the student a primary resource to enable him or her to study the texts independently. It provides introductory material on each book, a basic commentary, and pointers to theological interpretation. Each chapter is supplied with lists of commentaries and other works, so as to open a range of critical and interpretative literature on the prophets. All Scripture quotations are taken from the New Revised Standard Version, unless otherwise noted.
