In the ancient world, much as today, nations and rulers sought strength in force, influence and, sometimes, strange or material idols. Above these stood the Israelite prophets, messengers from God who brought hard words as well as good news. Using metaphors, imagery, and poetic language, a colorful portrait of God’s love for His people, especially the poor and oppressed, is painted. Though they didn’t always heed His Word, many found themselves amid the consequences of their actions (or lack thereof), including imminent destruction. In Prophetic Books I: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, and Baruch, Fr. William A. Anderson probes these visions, prophecies, and oracles, offering historical insight to the messages as well as spiritual insight into the action. He takes us from Judah to Assyria, through the Babylonian exile and back again, describing how God can work good out of evil and send grace through sin.


This title is part of the Liguori Catholic Bible Study. The study is a series of 21 books introducing each and every book of the Bible, providing insight into the Sacred Words of antiquity, and inviting us to discover the living Word and its impact on our daily lives. With narrative, study questions, reflections, keynotes, and prayer, your understanding of Scripture will be deepened with the introduction tot the spiritual practice of lectio divina.
