This updated edition clusters each major and minor prophet and his writing with the major historical events of the day. Author C. Haskell Bullock has chosen to follow a historical line of study through literary prophets, instead of the usual canonical order. Bullock opens the door so you can study the prophets of the Neo-Assyrian period, whose attention focused on the circumstances and results of the fall of the Northern Kingdom (Israel) in 722 B.C.; those of the Neo-Babylonian period, who focused on the fall of the Southern Kingdom (Judah) in 586 B.C.; and the prophets of the Persian period and the Jewish return to Israel after exile. Through this guide, you will get a clear picture of Israel's history, as well as sharper understanding of Old Testament prophets and prophetic literature.
The Old Testament prophets spoke to Israel in times of historical and moral crisis. They saw themselves as being a part of a story that God was weaving throughout history--a story of repentance, encouragement, and a coming Messiah. In this updated introductory book, each major and minor prophet and his writing are clustered with the major historical events of their time.
Our generational distance from the age of the prophets might seem to be a measureless chasm. Yet we dare not make the mistake of assuming that passing years have rendered irrelevant not only the Old Testament prophets, but also the God who comprehends, spans, and transcends all time. In these pages, C. Hassell Bullock presents a clear picture of some of history's most profound spokesmen--the Old Testament prophets--and the God who shaped them.
C. HASSELL BULLOCK (B.A., Samford University; B.D., Columbia Theological Seminary; University Ph.D., Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion) is professor of Old Testament studies at Wheaton College. Since the completion of his formal education, Dr. Bullock has served as both a professor and as a pastor in 10 different churches.
He is the author of An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Books, Encountering the Book of Psalms, An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Books, and An Introduction to the Old Testament Poetic Books.
Dr. Bullock resides in Wheaton, Illinois.
