Although most introductions to the prophetic books of the Bible focus on their composition, Gary V. Smith uses communication theory and the sociology of knowledge to analyze just how the preaching of the Old Testament prophets changed individual lives, influenced the world’s greatest leaders, and caused entire nations to repent.
Individual chapters on Amos, Hosea, Jonah, Micah, Isaiah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Jeremiah, Joel, Obadiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi also include discussion questions concerning theological and social implications. The Prophets as Preachers also features ten illustrations, glossary of terms, bibliography, and indices of subjects and names.
