Item description for Basic Forms of Prophetic Speech by Claus Westermann, Hugh C. White & Gene M. Tucker...

The words of Old Testament prophetic messages have remained the same over millennia---but our understanding of them has changed profoundly. Summarizing and analyzing 50 years of scholarly work, Westermann points up astonishingly different conceptions of prophecy in its history of interpretation. He also introduces some of the major problems in contemporary prophecy studies. Translated by Hugh C. White.

Publishers Description

The prophetic message awakens the people of God and calls them back from their perverse ways. But the history of the investigation of prophecy shows that the understanding of these messages has changed profoundly over time. Claus Westermann provides indications of the astonishing differences in the conceptions of prophecy in the history of its interpretation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Basic Forms of Prophetic Speech?

A classic text  Aug 22, 2002
While the book does fully discuss the "basic forms of prophetic speech" in detail, it is not a text that can be taken lightly. Much of the information seems a bit convoluted at times and the author seems to be repetitious and occasionally self contradictory. This is a text for serious study of prophetic works contained within the OT and is a classic reference for those willing to muddle through minutia.
