Overview

Well-known Biblical scholar Georg Heinrich Ewald takes an in-depth look at the prophets of the Old Testament in this collection, Commentary on the Prophets of the Old Testament (5 Vols.). 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.

Along with a thorough exegesis, these resources published between the years of 1875 and 1881 also contain indexes and appendixes. A must-have for all interested in Old Testament studies, these volumes are now also easily searchable in your Logos collection.
