Product Description

In The Prophet and His Message Williams helps both students and lay persons expand their vision of the Old Testament from a prophetic perspective. Rather than introduce each prophetic book, Williams examines what a prophet is and does, Israel's prophetic role, Jesus as the ultimate prophet, and the church's prophetic ministry today.

Editorial Reviews

Williams has provided lay people with a way of reading biblical prophecy that helps them avoid the many popular and extreme outlooks that surround us today. What a joy to see sober reflection on this very important part of Scripture put in a way that everyone can understand.
In this very readable study, Williams not only shows us who and what the Old Testament prophets were in their own context, he also reveals how that understanding helps us to grasp more fully the prophetic ministry of Christ and the prophetic calling of the church. This book will both fix your eyes upon Jesus and challenge you to a greater understanding of what it means to be a faithful Christian in your own setting.
Michael Williams skillfully explores the role of the prophets in order to bridge the horizon to their significance for individuals and the church today. Exegetically and theologically savvy.

    Williams' book opened my eyes to see how the entire Bible holds together as a whole. Using the prophets as a springboard, Williams discusses in successive chapters who they are (and are not), what they do and how the nation Israel is a prophet to its community. As the prophet represents God to the people through the messages given, and he represents the people to God, so Israel represents God to the nations and the nations to God. He then goes on to describe how Jesus' dual role of Son of God and Son of Man fulfills this as well. If you ever wanted to see how the Bible is one continuous revelation of God's desire for all of us to be in fellowship with Him and His plan of salvation through Jesus, read this book. I'm using it to teach an adult Christian Education class on the prophets and I love it.

    here is a study on prophets and prophecy, old and new tesament, that is sane and sober. forget all the goofy and speculative prophecy stuff floating around in popular christianity, get this book instead and learn what biblical realistic prophecy is all about. also check out Interpreting The Prophetic Word by Willem VanGemeren as well as The Christ of the Prophets by O. Palmer Robertson.
