Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

We meet the prophets of Israel in our own time and in one place--Scripture. So it might seem odd to consider that they are not all the same, these voices from "back then." In fact, the prophets inhabited a time span of hundreds of years and faced events that on their own terms were more convulsive than our 9/11. They were not uniform in their language, their concerns, their personalities, their remedies or their visions of the future. In this book, Sam Meier explores some recurring themes and features--such as angels, writing, miracles, the future and kingmaking--all with an eye on their transformation over time. And the defining event in this transformation turns out to be the great convulsive event of the story of Israel, the defeat and exile of the kingdom of Judah. Themes and Transformations in Old Testament Prophecy is a book that goes beyond the standard introductions to the prophets. Yet it does so in a way that will inform and intrigue beginning students and anyone curious about the prophets of Israel.
