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.
