Well-known Biblical scholar Georg Heinrich Ewald takes an in-depth look at the prophets of the Old Testament. The Old Testament prophets are a large and much discussed part of the Old Testament writings, and Ewald presents a critical commentary series unique in historical context and writing style. This exceptional set introduces each prophet in historically chronological order, rather than presenting a more traditional Biblically ordered listing.
A professor of both theology and philosophy, Ewald was associated with both the Protestant association and the Hanoverian Church of Germany. His writings on the Old Testament come from his extensive studies in the Hebrew language and research on the topic of the chronology of the Old Testament.
Haggai, Zachariah, Malachai, and a further look at anonymous prophets are expounded upon in Ewald’s fifth and final volume of Commentary on the Prophets of the Old Testament (5 Vols). An appendix ends the collection, covering newer prophetic authors Jeremiah, Daniel, and Baruch.
