Item Description...
Overview
The Old Testament prophets focus on human behavior, declaring what is right and wrong according to God. But were the prophets themselves ethical in their own actions and in their interpretation of God's will? In this study, Dempsey takes a holistic approach to biblical ethics in the prophets, exploring the link between hope and grace as ethical practices.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Selective reading of prophetic ethics.  Dec 22, 2003
Dempsey looks at some prophetic passages using a liberationist critical hermeneutic. The book begins with a brief but interesting assessment of recent scholarly discussions of ethics in the Old Testament. Dempsey then sets the next stage for the book by discussing creation, covenant, and Torah; all with an emphasis upon relationship as she heads toward embracing a biocentric ethic for humanity. Her focus is selective so the element of blessing is ignored in the discussion of the Abrahamic covenant. The book deals with many short sections from the classical prophets of the Hebrew Bible as Dempsey questions the ethics of the prophets and drives a wedge between the OT prophets (entire Bible) and modern ethics. In the end, Dempsey seems to be searching not only for new metahpors for God but a new God.
