9780020842200: The Prophetic Faith

Originally published in English in 1949, The Prophetic Faith features Martin Buber’s readings of select biblical prophets—especially Isaiah and Deborah, the only female prophet and judge in the Hebrew Bible. In an approach that combines insights from biblical prophecy with a concern for events in the here and now, Buber outlines his interpretation of biblical revelation. Infused with an anti-institutional—some have said anarchic—sensibility, Buber discusses the notion of kingship as portrayed in the Bible and provides an account of human suffering in an extended discussion of the Book of Job. Anticipating those today who describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious,” Buber gives pride of place to a personal God outside of formal religious and legal strictures.

Featuring a new introduction by Jon D. Levenson, The Prophetic Faith encourages a renewed appreciation for the Hebrew Bible and its relevance to the practical challenges of the present day.
