Overview

"The Prophets" is widely recognized as a masterpiece of biblical scholarship. Heschel attempts to understand the thoughts, feelings, and impressions of each of the prophets, presenting the reader with a sense of their very being. He effectively achieves a balance between the objective supernatural and the subjective human situation, and presents a unique discussion of Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, Micah, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk and their particular challenges and journeys. In the second part of the book, Heschel addresses such subjects as pathos, wrath, sympathy, ecstacy, psychosis, and prophetic and poetic inspiration, and in so doing offers a new contribution to the philosophy of religion. "The Prophets" is both scholarly and devotional, an indispensable part of an in-depth understanding of the Hebrew Bible.
