The prophets of the Old Testament include such well known characters as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, and Hosea. There are, however, many other prophets, both in the biblical books that bear their names and in the other histories and stories of ancient Israel. Sharp offers a brief introduction to each of the Bible┐s prophets and their prophetic books, developing the theological themes present in each with an eye toward how the prophetic message is relevant today. Sharp understands that prophets can be mediators to connect us with the holiness of God, they can be idealists whose desires for humanity call us to new heights of God┐s desire, and they can be companions for us in the confusing journey through our complicated world. The book contains study questions for group or individual use.
