Prophets I - Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Baruch
Liguori Catholic Bible Study
Author William Anderson
Who were the major prophets in ancient Israel? how did the exile affect God's people?How can we learn and trust in the face of suffering? How does lectio divina move us to pray with scripture?
In the ancient world, much as today, rulers and nations sought strength in force, influence, and strange or material idols. Above these stood the Israelite prophets, messengers from God who brought good news as well as hard words. Using metaphors, imagery, and poetic language, a colourful portrait of God's love for his people - especially the poor and oppressed - is painted.
In Prophets I, Fr Anderson probes these visions, prophecies, and oracles, offering historical context to the messages and spiritual insight into the action. He takes us from Judah to Assyria, through the Babylonian exile and back again, describing how God can work good out of evil and send grace through sin then - and now.
Includes study questions, reflections, key notes, prayers and an introduction to the practice of lectio divina.
