Endorsements

“An unparalleled introduction to the prophetic writings: sober in its erudition, comprehensiveness, and sound judgment; spiritual in its sound theology that elevates the reader to praising God; and simple in its clarity of style.” —Bruce Waltke

“As we have come to expect from him, O. Palmer Robertson has given us an exceptional study of Old Testament prophecy. In a day when the church is victimized by speculative interpretations of prophecy, he has provided a solid, sober, refreshingly reliable resource for understanding this part of the Bible. Laypeople, pastors, and scholars will find this book essential for the study of prophecy.” —Richard L. Pratt Jr.

A wonderful introduction to the prophets of ancient Israel. At the seminary where I teach, Robertson’s course on this material has been very well received.
