Each week in the synagogue, a portion is recited from the Nevi'im (or Prophets) that ties in with an earlier reading from the Torah. In Fishbane you'll find perceptive comments on the overall themes, historical background, and cultural elements in these texts, as well as their contribution to world Judaism. 700 pages, hardcover.

The" haftarot" are an ancient part of Hebrew liturgy. These supplemental readings are excerpted from the Prophets (Nevi'im) and accompany each weekly Sabbath reading from the Torah as well as readings for special Sabbaths and festivals. Noted Bible scholar Michael Fishbane introduces each haftarah with an outline and discussion of how that passage conveys its meaning, and he follows it with observations on how it relates to the Torah portion or special occasion. Individual comments, citing classical rabbinic as well as modern commentators, highlight ambiguities and difficulties in the Hebrew text, which appears in concert with the JPS translation. The haftarot are also put into biblical context by a separate overview of all prophetic books (except Jonah) that are excerpted in the haftarah cycle.
