"Professor Achtemeier is long established as a reliable, insightful interpreter of Scripture. And here she has ample textual material wherein she demonstrates, once again, her skill as an interpreter... . Achtemeier's theological passion is evident throughout, as she stays close to the canonical accents of judgement and hope. It is unmistakable that there is a close fit between the urgings of the prophetic texts and Achtemeier's own theological concerns. The convergence is a happy one that provides a useful, trustworthy study that exposits the main issues of Israel's faith." - Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
