Unique, creative, violent, passionate, judgmental, spiritual, extreme. So were the prophets of the Old Testament. They lived through events far more dramatic than anything we, as modern Americans have seen. They watched massive armies march across the face of the globe, witnessed the fall and weaknesses of even the strongest rulers, they were not uniform, in speech, concern, or expression but together they were voice and conscience of God to the people of Israel. With a keen eye Sam Meier in Themes and Transformations in Old Testament Prophecy explores these and other themes, events, and the prophet's reactions to them in the Old Testament. In doing so, Meier powerfully brings the prophets, their context, and their personalities to life.
