This volume of the Navarre Bible commentaries sheds light on the four "major" prophets of the Old Testament: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. In the language of the Bible, the words "prophet", "prophecy" etc. have quite a broad meaning, but all refer primarily to the idea of "speaking in the name of God". While each of these books of the Old Testament is unique in its message, there are three points that they all stress – belief in God, the future Messianic age, and ethical and social teaching. Like all the books in the Navarre series, this edition will help to deepen your understanding of these sacred texts.

It is easy to read, but it is also thorough, without too much technical/scholarly jargon. Best Uses: Gift, Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written|
