Overview

The old man stood at the door, his dark form outlined against the early evening grayness of the wet street. He felt miserable, wishing he’d not been given this assignment. He lacked confidence, and longed to have the old fire back, that reckless sense of mission that had once driven him. Back then, he hadn’t given a fig for the feelings or opinions of others. Tonight, however, things were different. He’d learned mercy and grace over many years, and it troubled him to think that twelve people were about to have their world turned upside-down.
Prophets at the Door brings Old Testament Bible prophets into today’s world. Jake and Angela Pels and their friends discover that studying Bible prophets is a far cry from encountering them face-to-face. Over several months each of the sixteen Old Testament writing prophets brings his ancient writing and experience to this twenty-first century home Bible study group. Sometimes they also confront their hosts at work, or even on the street. With each visit, the prophets reveal something of themselves, but they also speak to the present hopes, doubts, and conflicts of the group members who host them. Angela, Jake, and their friends are encouraged to “listen – learn – think differently about us and our message – apply what we say to your lives today.”
