    Loved reading this book. A simple thesis (that the essence of the office of prophet is to be a representative) with a clear structure (looking how he represents God to the people and the people to God. This work points to Christ as the great prophet and expounds the prophetic call of the church.

    Redundant and uninteresting. I should have just read the Bible.

    Very good, with the exception of several places where he seems to be saying that God has emotions.

    A concise, clear, and Christ centered introduction to the Old Testament prophets. Dr. Williams is an engaging writer, who Christ centered accents do not come at the expense of digging into the nuances of the texts before. He is an engaging writer too, who held my attention, during this journey into a fascinating genre in Old Testament scripture. A 'must' read for every student of the Old testament.

A recurring theme throughout the book is that the office of prophet is a whole-souled endeavor: it is verbal, behavioral, affectional (emotional), and complete. The final chapter (6), argues that the church, every Christian, has a prophetic role in the world. This book is good for church teachers. It is meaty, so you will have to think and work a bit, but it is clear enough and interesting enough that lay readers might find it enjoyable too.

    This book is a fabulous and very accessible discussion of Old Testament Prophecy/Prophets. Its major strength lies in its forceful application of the prophetic call to Christians and the Christian Church today. Not only does it give new meaning to your reading of Old Testament Prophecy, it also develops prophecy as a powerful redemptive theme that exhorts us to proclaim the name of Christ through our words, actions, and emotions.

    A must read book written in a very accessible style. Not only does Williams unpack how to read the Old Testament prophets, but even more importantly he makes the connection to how the prophetic typology is fulfilled by Jesus and now commissioned to the church. My only knock against it is that it is too short. I wished he had gone into even more detail.

    A wonderful primer on the nature and activity of OT prophets and the practical continuity into our own day

    Very good first half; second half had typical Presbyterian shortcomings (wrong application of typology). I think the book would have been better if he just left off the second half.

    Very interesting introduction to the role of the prophet as a representative of both God and his people. Helpful insights on the prophetic ministry of the local church too.

    Pretty strong. I underlined the first 3/4 (see book). The last 1/4 was on the (present-day) church as a prophet and its prophetic role today. Good stuff.
