    Interpreting the Prophetic Books

    An Exegetical Handbook

    A guide for students and pastors to aptly interpret and communicate the messages of the prophetic books


    Preaching from a prophetic text can be daunting because it can be difficult to place these prophecies in their proper historical setting. The prophets used different literary genres and they often wrote using metaphorical poetry that is unfamiliar to the modern reader. This handbook offers an organized method of approaching a prophecy and preparing a persuasive, biblically based sermon that will draw modern application from the theological principle embedded in the prophetic text.
