In this abridged version of The Christ of the Prophets, O. Palmer Robertson captures the passion and purpose of their extraordinary writings.
After examining the origins of prophetism, the prophets' call, and their proclamation and application of law and covenant, Robertson devotes special attention to the biblical-theological significance of the exile. Viewing that phenomenon through the lens of several prophets, he draws our focus to the glorious restoration of God's people in Christ.
