View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This text studies the phenomenon of prophecy in a wide context, the prophetic literature represented in the Bible and the message of the prophets. Then it surveys all the prophets from Moses to Huldah, and the prophetic books from Isaiah to Malachi. Special attention is paid to legends about the prophetis, both canonical and apocryphal, many of which have been considerably more influential in the history of western civilization than the prophets' original words. A final chapter in this revised edition continues the story of biblical prophecy into the early Church and considers Jewish, Muslim and Christian interpretations and the matter of fulfillment of prophecy. It also contains a new section on feminist interpretation.
