Reviews - What do customers think about The Prophets: Vol. 1: The Assyrian Period?
Probably the best out there Mar 7, 2003
I must confess I haven't read these two volumes entirely, but I had to write something in response to the review above. There is a Prophets class taught in my school by Professor C. Hassel Bullock and he uses these two volumes as the primary text for study in that class. After reading Dr. Bullock's Introduction to the Old Testament Prophets (which I would highly reccomend to any one who wishes to know more about ANY of the prophets) and taking into account his status as a Prophets scholar, I trust Dr. Bullock's judgement in using these that they are of the highest quality scholarship. If you want a more general reading though, get Bullock's book.
The title is somehow confusing and deceptive. Mar 25, 1999
I am definitely not a scholar or for that matter an expert in literature. But as a simple reader and someone who is looking for certain subject titles to purchase through the web, reading this one, Prophets: The Assyrian Period, gave me the impression that the book was somehow relating to Assyrian history as a core matter of the book. It turned out to be all about the Israelites prophets in the period when the Assyrian Empire of antiquity was in power. The author could have had his title as such Prophets: from X to Y (indicating years as desired).
