In this abridged version of The Christ of the Prophets, O. Palmer Robertson captures the passion and purpose of their extraordinary writings.
After examining the origins of prophetism, the prophets’ call, and their proclamation and application of law and covenant, Robertson devotes special attention to the biblical-theological significance of the exile. Viewing that phenomenon through the lens of several prophets, he draws our focus to the glorious restoration of God’s people in Christ.
“An unparalleled introduction to the prophetic writings: sober in its erudition, comprehensiveness, and sound judgment; spiritual in its sound theology that elevates the reader to praising God; and simple in its clarity of style.”
“An exceptional study of Old Testament prophecy. In a day when the church is victimized by speculative interpretations of prophecy, Robertson has provided a solid, sober, refreshingly reliable resource for understanding this part of the Bible. Laypeople, pastors, and scholars will find this book essential for the study of prophecy.”
—Richard L. Pratt Jr.
“A remarkable book, tracing prophetism in Israel from its rise all the way through Old Testament history. . . . Evangelical colleges and seminaries and Bible-believing pastors will warmly welcome it and find it a useful teaching tool for many years to come.”
—Robert L. Reymond
“A wonderful introduction to the prophets of ancient Israel. At the seminary where I teach, Robertson’s course on this material has been very well received.”
