Abraham Heschel is a seminal name in religious studies and the author of Man Is Not Alone and God in Search of Man. When The Prophets was first published in 1962, it was immediately recognized as a masterpiece of biblical scholarship.

The Prophets provides a unique opportunity for readers of the Old Testament, both Christian and Jewish, to gain fresh and deep knowledge of Israel's prophetic movement. The author's profound understanding of the prophets also opens the door to new insight into the philosophy of religion.

Abraham Heschel's study of the Hebrew Bible's Prophets is a must have for Bible study groups. You will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Prophetic books thanks to Heschel's insights. This is a theological and philosophical tour de force!

SInce 1962 many Jews and Christians, clergy and laymen alike, have gained new insights into the prophetic experience in general, and the pathos and challenges of the major Biblical prophets in particular, by reading Rabbi Abraham J. Heschel's "The Prophets".
As readers of Professor Heschel's other works [The Sabbath: Its Meaning to Modern Man, Between God and Man: An Interpretation of Judaism, God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism, etc. ] know his poetic prose enhances comprehension and retention.
