“as an introductory work, it is especially valuable because he is not sidetracked by extremely nuanced academic disagreement. He focuses on the broader structure of each prophet and how the composition reflects scribal changes and developments.” (The Biblical Review, 1 November 2015)
Ronald L. Troxel is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the author of LXX-Isaiah as Translation and Interpretation (2008).
This unique introduction to the Prophetic books provides a comprehensive look at one of the most important, and misunderstood, genres of the Hebrew Bible. The book examines the nature and purpose of prophetic literature, as well as providing an in-depth account of origins and development of each individual book. The book begins by placing the prophets in their historical context and introducing the idea of a prophetic book. A series of chronological chapters focus on each prophetic book examining its literary structure, authorship, and the editorial processes that produced each book. Readers are also introduced to the most recent scholarly research into the formation of prophetic books and the ongoing task of the scribes in updating previous works to meet new situations. Prophetic Literature: From Oracles to Books offers rich and rewarding insights into a series of prophetic works whose profound influences and inspirational wisdom have endured to the present day.
"The strength of Troxel's Prophetic Literature: From Oracle to Books is in its portrayal of the scribal intentions as they used and reused the prophetic oracles according to the needs of the community. The prophetic literature emerges from the past to speak once again." —Beverly Cushman, Westminster College "Troxel has written a thorough and careful analysis of the ways in which prophetic oracles were shaped into books by later scribes. An excellent introduction to the prophets in light of contemporary scholarship." —John J. Collins, Yale
