An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Books
This updated edition clusters each major and minor prophet and his writing with the major historical events of the day. Author C. Haskell Bullock has chosen to follow a historical line of study through literary prophets, instead of the usual canonical order. Bullock opens the door so you can study the prophets of the Neo-Assyrian period, whose attention focused on the circumstances and results of the fall of the Northern Kingdom (Israel) in 722 B.C.; those of the Neo-Babylonian period, who focused on the fall of the Southern Kingdom (Judah) in 586 B.C.; and the prophets of the Persian period and the Jewish return to Israel after exile. Through this guide, you will get a clear picture of Israel's history, as well as sharper understanding of Old Testament prophets and prophetic literature.
