Details

In this fresh and expansive work, Ellen Davis offers a comprehensive interpretation of the prophetic role and word in the Christian Scripture. Davis carefully outlines five essential features of the prophetic role and then systematically examines seven representations of prophets and prophecies.

Thoroughly theological in nature, Davis’s volume provides both instruction and insight for understanding prophecy in Christian tradition and discipleship. This volume concludes with a rich discussion of practical matters, including the relationship between Christian discipleship and prophetic interpretation and the role of biblical prophecy in interfaith contexts.
