Item description for Prophetic Oracles of Salvation in the Old Testament by Claus Westermann & Keith R. Crim...
Overview Israel's prophets pronounced unforgettable messages of judgment and doom, but they also proclaimed the glorious salvation prepared for God's people. Westermann demonstrates that these ''oracles of salvation'', occurring in four distinct forms, constitute a coherent prophetic tradition.
"Prophetic Oracles of Salvation in the Old Testament" is a comprehensive and innovative assessment of these often ignored or misunderstood canonical texts. Claus Westermann shows that these oracles occur in distinct forms and make up a coherent tradition. He goes on to demonstrate that these texts, often percieved only as a message of judgement and doom, in fact proclaim hope and deliverance as well.
