Studying the prophets,” writes Michael J. Williams, “opens a window through which, if we look carefully enough, we may glimpse the entirety of God’s redemptive plan.” In The Prophet and His Message Williams helps both students and lay persons expand their vision of the Old Testament from a prophetic perspective.

Rather than introduce each prophetic book, Williams examines what a prophet is and does, Israel’s prophetic role, Jesus as the ultimate prophet, and the church’s prophetic ministry today.
