This updated edition clusters each major and minor prophet and his writing with the major historical events of the day. Author C. Haskell Bullock has chosen to follow a historical line of study through literary prophets, instead of the usual canonical order. Bullock opens the door so you can study the prophets of the Neo-Assyrian period, whose attention focused on the circumstances and results of the fall of the Northern Kingdom (Israel) in 722 B.C.; those of the Neo-Babylonian period, who focused on the fall of the Southern Kingdom (Judah) in 586 B.C.; and the prophets of the Persian period and the Jewish return to Israel after exile. Through this guide, you will get a clear picture of Israel's history, as well as sharper understanding of Old Testament prophets and prophetic literature.
