DougSimi Valley, CAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding Presentation of the Prophetic FunctionMarch 1, 2014DougSimi Valley, CAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Williams' 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.

Palmer Robertson.
