Item Description...
An experienced teacher of the prophetic materials here provides students with an accessible entree into this fascinating aspect of Hebrew Bible studies. The author begins by asking five basic questions about Israelite prophecy and the prophetic books: Do the prophetic books witness to a real phenomenon of prophecy in Israel?; What is the relationship of the "classical" or "writing" prophets to the "pre-classical" prophets?; Where should we look for the origins of Israelite prophecy?; How do the prophets relate to their culture and society?; How does the prophetic collection of writings relate to the legal and historical traditions of Israel? Through literary, social, and theological analysis, the author then introduces the most noted of the Hebrew prophets, including Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah, with special attention to Jeremiah.

Publishers Description
- Covers the primary pre-exilic prophets
- Introduces the student to the critical issues of prophecy

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Helpful little volume on the prophets!  Jul 9, 2005
Hutton has written a helpful little introduction to the prophets. He accepts the prophets as real persons even if filtered by the work of later editors. The author accepts many standard tenants of historical criticism. Such positions as the sign of Josiah (1 Kings 13) being a "fabricated story," (34) and Isaiah's angel of the Lord an embellishment of a historical account show his anti-supernatural bias. Hutton continues to propagate the false dichotomy between oracles of judgment as marks of a true prophet and oracles of hope as indications of later additions. The primary message of each book rather than its structure or genre is the emphasis of the author's treatment and Hutton often provides helpful insights in his discussion. For example, his comment on Micah and preaching (verb nataf) is a nice summary. All in all the book is a nice read and would be quite helpful to any seeking an overview of the Old Testament prophetic books. It is especially recommended as a complement to some of the longer introductions.
