More About This Textbook

Overview

Introduction to the Prophets is a helpful guide to reading the prophetic books of the Christian canon, discussing the Major and Minor Prophets in their canonical order. It is intended to introduce modern readers to the ancient books.

Paul Redditt assumes little or no prior knowledge of the prophets on the part of the reader. For example, when he introduces technical terms, he takes care to define them and includes a glossary for complete reference. Each chapter discusses

  • The place of each book in the canon
  • The literary setting of each book
  • Their structure, integrity, and authorship
  • The main genre(s) in each
  • Special features of each book
  • Basic emphasis of each book
  • Problems — theological, literary, or historical — raised

Redditt eschews review questions at the end of the chapters, instead offering questions for further reflection. Introduction to the Prophets also includes three chapters discussing the nature of prophecy, methods developed by scholars to use in studying the Bible, the rise of the “Book of Twelve,” and the approach taken to them here.

This book is helpful and thorough, perfect as a text or for anyone hoping to delve deeper into the prophets.
