“The Prophetic Books of the Bible are fully of symbolic speeches, dramatic metaphors, and lengthy allegories—a unique blend of literary styles that can make them hard to comprehend. How can we know if we are reading them the way God intended them to be read? In How to Read and Understand the Biblical Prophets, leading Old Testament scholar Peter Gentry identifies seven common characteristics of prophetic literature in the Bible that help us understand each book’s message.” This is a wonderful little book from one of my very favorite authors that I’m excited to read through again with you all! It is available in the Westside Bookstore at a greatly reduced price.
