Item description for Theology of the Prophetic Books by Donald E. Gowan...
Overview Gowan studies a unique group of books that had come into existence because ofthe destruction of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and the beginning of therestoration of Judeans to their homeland. (Christian)
Donald Gowan offers a unified reading of the prophetic books, showing that each has a distinctive contribution to make to a central theme. These books--Isaiah through Malachi--respond to three key moments in Israel's history: the end of the Northern Kingdom in 722 BCE, the end of the Southern Kingdom in 587 BCE, and the beginning of the restoration from the Babylonian exile in 538 BCE. Gowan traces the theme of death and resurrection throughout these accounts, finding a symbolic message of particular significance to Christian interpreters of the Bible.

I am using this book in a seminary course, and I find the content to be very useful in placing the prophetic books into context. I will be keeping this book on my shelf as a reference and turning to it to locate the prophetic books in history etc. I am very happy with this book!
