Item Description...
What is prophecy? - Social criticism? Divination? Political rhetoric? Whimsy? A literary genre? Some or all of the above, or something else entirely? How does it function in the biblical text? How did it function in Israelite society? How does it relate to phenomena found in other Ancient Near Eastern cultures? How does true prophecy differ from false? The various facets and enigmas of Hebrew prophecy have occupied many biblical scholars over recent decades, and the progress of the investigation is documented by this collection of quality articles that have appeared in "Vetus Testamentum," Readers will find the individual studies, from a variety of approaches, frequently eye-opening, always instructive and stimulating. The collection as a whole offers a useful resource for all students of biblical prophecy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Past studies on criticism for present students.  Apr 13, 2005
This work collects articles that relate to the prophets and prophetic literature of the Hebrew Bible. Though published in 2000 this book represents a collection of articles previously published by Vetus Testamentum, mostly during the last quarter of the twentieth century. The oldest is 1964, the most recent 1993, while the bulk are from the 70's and 80's. On the one hand this publication covers a broad range of topics because of the different scholarly contributors (19 articles by 18 authors). On the other hand it is limited by the date of the articles and by the nature of the scholars that contribute to VT.

The book makes available key studies on the prophets in a helpful, combined format. Generally authors take an exegetical approach while examining one book, or part of a book, and springboard to discussions relevant for the prophets in general. Articles focus on the major prophets and a number of the minor prophets.

The greater emphasis of the book is on form criticism and redaction criticism with some awareness of rhetorical criticism. Given the dates, it is understandable that there is less emphasis upon social science criticism, although both Carroll and Parker refer to data from anthropological studies. The greater void is any real consideration for studies that move toward the final form of the text. Certainly the final form is in view but canon criticism (or the like) is not. Even the fruits of rhetorical criticism do not move in that direction.

The book is most helpful in that it gathers statements from key scholars into one place for current students of the prophets. One is better prepared by knowing something about the development of historical criticism and key scholars than reading this book for such information. It is, rather, an illustration of their individual views. Subjects that cross the articles are the differences between pre-classical and classical prophecy, distinguishing true from false prophecy, genre analysis and the formation of prophetic literature.

The book is recommended as supportive reading in the historical critical analysis of the prophets. Recommended are the articles by Zimmerli and Gitay, and weakest, in the opinion of this reviewer, are Weinfeld, who struggles to differentiate form and function, and Haran, whose analysis is very subjective. The indexes of names and Scripture references are helpful additions.
