Item Description...
Overview
The compelling wisdom of the Hebrew prophets can become a companion for your own spiritual journey Thousands of years after they spoke, the Hebrew prophets still have the power to strip away what we think we know in order to get to the truth. Their words, spoken as far back as the eighth century B.C.E., challenge us to engage justice, kindness, and humility in every aspect of our lives, thus choosing who we are, and who we are to become. The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained places you in direct conversation with them, allowing the prophets to speak directly to you about your life right here, right now. With fresh, contemporary translations, Rami Shapiro focuses on the central themes covered by all the prophets: moving from ignorance to wisdom, injustice to justice, cruelty to compassion, and despair to joy. This unique look at the Hebrew prophets sharpens the personal nature of their message and highlights their critique of the spiritual errors everyone faces in life, challenging you to correct those errors and experience a life of awakening joy. Now you can experience the empowering words of the Hebrew prophets, even if you have no previous knowledge of the Hebrew Bible or Judaism. This SkyLight Illuminations edition presents selections from the Hebrew prophets, with insightful yet unobtrusive commentary that conveys the prophetic call for humankind to fulfill the promise to renew harmony and unity, and to engage life with a sense of holiness and wholeness.

Publishers Description

Fresh translation and facing-page annotations bring the compelling wisdom of the Hebrew prophets to life.

Hundreds of commentaries and dozens of Bible translations make the Hebrew prophets available to modern-day readers, but most often these sources focus on history or apologetics, losing the reader who is searching for spiritual insight.

"The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained" makes the wisdom of these timeless teachers available to readers with no previous knowledge of the prophets. With fresh, contemporary commentary, Rami Shapiro reveals the central themes covered by all the prophets: moving from ignorance to wisdom, injustice to justice, cruelty to compassion, and despair to joy.

This unique look at the Hebrew Prophets sharpens the personal nature of their message and highlights their critique of the spiritual errors we all face in life, challenging readers to correct those errors and experience a life of awakening and joy.

A valuable introduction to understanding passages of the Old Testament  Jan 13, 2006
Award-winning storyteller, poet, and essayist Rabbi Rami Shapiro presents The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained is a collection of quotes from Hebrew prophets presented both in their literal English translations and contemporary vernacular English explanations of the phrases' meanings. The Hebrew Prophets reveals how words spoken as early as the eighth century B.C.E. direct the faithful to practice justice, wisdom, kindness, and humility. For example, Zechariah 7:8-10 "Execute true justice; / deal kindly and compassionately with one another. / Do not oppress the widow, / the orphan, the stranger, and the poor. / Do not set your heart to plotting evil" is further explained with "This is what God desires: kindness, mercy, and justice to the powerful and powerless alike. Everything else is a mere distraction." The Hebrew Prophets is a valuable introduction to understanding passages of the Old Testament, fully accessible to readers who have little or no knowledge of the Hebrew Bible or Judaism.
