The unparalleled outpouring of inspired literature through the prophets came at a period of history that invites comparisons to our own. In this abridged, more accessible edition of "The Christ of the Prophets," O. Palmer Robertson captures the passion and purpose of their extraordinary writings.

He examines the origins of prophetism, the prophets' call, and their proclamation and application of law and covenant, and then devotes special attention to the biblical-theological significance of the exile. Viewing that episode through the lens of several prophets, Robertson draws our focus to the glorious restoration of God's people in Christ.

Review:

"As we have come to expect from him, O. Palmer Robertson has given us an exceptional study of Old Testament prophecy. In a day when the church is victimized by speculative interpretations of prophecy, he has provided a solid, sober, refreshingly reliable resource for understanding this part of the Bible. Laypeople, pastors, and scholars will find this book essential for the study of prophecy." --Richard L. Pratt, Jr.

"Robertson's sure touch, exegetical thoroughness, theological sensitivity, and rigorous scholarship combine to produce works of lasting value. This is another tour de force. He opens a window on the Old Testament prophets that sheds more than just light; it radiates a passion for their study and proclamation. An essential tool for every student of Scripture who desires a robust biblical theology." --Derek W. H. Thomas

"An unparalleled introduction to the prophetic writings: sober in its erudition, comprehensiveness, and sound judgment; spiritual in its sound theology that elevates the reader to praising God; and simple in its clarity of style." --Bruce Waltke
