Item Description...
Most introductions to the prophetic books focus on composition. But Smith uses communication theory and the sociology of knowledge to analyze how the preaching of the Old Testament prophets changed individual lives, influenced the world's greatest leaders, and caused entire nations to repent. Each chapter includes discussion questions concerning theological and social implications.

Designed for use in upper-level college courses and seminary courses on the prophets

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Resource on the OT Prophets  May 20, 2008
This book is notable for its steady use of communication theory and the sociology of knowledge to evaluate the Biblical prophets. Smith analyzes God's use of the prophets as change agents in terms of the persuasiveness of their prophetic communication, the theology of their messages and their sociological involvement with their audience.

Chapters 1 and 2 give theories about the nature of communication and social change, the remaining sixteen chapters apply the theories to each of the sixteen writing prophets, and a final chapter summarizes principles characterizing prophetic endeavors.

After a short introduction suggesting the book's key issues, each chapter has several pages on "Social Setting" that give the historical context, structure of the social order and social location and role of the prophet. The main section of the chapter, entitled "Social Interaction," presents an outline of the book and then follows the book's own sequence in a review of its content.

Recommended for college and seminary students who wish to have a better grasp on the OT Prophets.
An excellent tool for understanding the prophets.  Nov 5, 2003
Simply the best commentary on the prophets out there! Dr. Smith's dating of the prophets and interpretation of their messages shows careful, thoughtful, exegesis of the text and his presentation in writing is easy to follow. Any person can use this book for a study of the prophets and benefit greatly from it. Pastors - this one is a must-have for your library. When was the last time you preached a series on one or more of the prophets? Was it because you do not fully understand the messages they have? This book should kindle the desire to preach the prophets!
A great tool!  Jan 10, 2001
I am a student at a seminary in the metroplex and was required to purchase this book for a class. I have found that this book is a wonderful tool to enhance the insight that can be taken from the Old Testament Prophets.

The author takes you through every Old Testament prophet and gives a summary that will add color and depth to your reading. It will provide history, context, background, etc. It has been a book that I have recommended to others to better understand the power behind Old Testament writings.
