This is what I wrote by way of introduction of my book “Prophets of the Bible” that will be available, online and in book form, by the end of September 2020 (320 pp).
“Prophets of the Bible” tries to identify EVERY prophet in the Bible, named and unnamed, recognised as a prophet at the time, or said or did something which the author identifies as being prophetic that made him or her a prophet for at least that period, and then to relate a (necessarily) succinct, contextual account of their lives and ministries, together with God’s eternal purposes and its relevance for today.
I have been working on this book from the start of the year, and before that. While there have been many untoward affects of Covid-19 lockdown, one benefit for me is having the time and space to write this book, which is the culmination of fifty years of thinking on the subject and represents something of my heritage and legacy.
Note: the following is the first draft version of the proof read text. I give until 1800 Friday 4th September for comments before re-posting what will be the final draft:
