All Bible students wish they understood the Old Testament prophets. Very few of them do. That is why there is a continuing substantial demand throughout the world for this illuminating handbook by an O.T. specialist of international repute. After an introductory chapter dealing with the function of the prophet and the nature of Old Testament prophecy, there are individual studies of the sixteen prophetical books, taken as far as can be determined in their chronological order. Each book is prefaced by an analysis; notes are given on authorship, historical background and so on; critical questions are discussed where necessary and an exposition of the main points of each prophecy is provided. "Altogether," as one reviewer wrote, "the best conservative handbook on the prophets produced for many a long day."
