What a wonderful overview!!!

The prophets can be so hard to follow or understand. These lectures greatly help to identify the setting of each prophetic writing and to clarify the audience and imagery used. I will definitely listen to this again and again. I also look forward to reading the physical book very soon to help cement the wonderful things I’ve learned in my mind.

Insightful lecture - not dry or slow

It’s fun to hear someone who is deeply knowledgeable enthusiastically share his knowledge and insight. Fits the subject well.

Great For What It Is

These lectures are exceptionally well-organized and packed with content. They track along with the book and serve as a good companion to the read.

For anyone looking to get a full, canonically-connected introduction and overview of the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible from a Christian perspective, I can’t think of a better source. J. Daniel Hays’s presentation is clear, thorough, and compelling.

Too Much Politics ...

Author spends too much time with the politics of Jeruselum ; ignores prophets' messages.
