"This volume offers a balance of historical information concerning and theoretical principles pertaining to the eighth century prophets, preaching as praxis, and prophetic books as literary pieces on the one hand, and sermons which "put flesh on" the information and principles enunciated in the preparatory essays on the other. I enthusiastically applaud the effort and time expended by the authors and editors of this volume to produce a motivational, user-friendly book which will challenge and encourage preachers and teachers to seek to proclaim faithfully God's word found in the Old Testament."
