Paul Nadim Tarazi
Series: The Old Testament: An Introduction, vol. 2

The books of the Old Testament prophets abound with enigmas tending to leave the modern reader bewildered.  Why did Amos claim not to be a prophet?  Did Hosea really marry a harlot at God’s command?  Were Isaiah’s famous “sign of Immanuel” and “servant poems” really Messianic prophecies?  Why all the strange visions in Ezekial, and what do they mean?  Above all, what is or was a “prophet” and what was each one trying to say to his contemporaries?

Paul Tarazi’s distinctive treatment of the prophetic books allows him to answer all of these and other key questions in the second volume of his trilogy of Old Testament Introductions.  First examining in detail Amos as a prototype of all the prophets and then focusing solely on the unique message and characteristics of each of the others, he is able to treat important issues with a depth rarely attained in an introductory work.
