About-

The study of the eighth-century prophets has experienced major changes over the past five decades. In these articles, published during a time when traditional methods of reading these texts gave way to new interests and approaches, John Willis addresses some of the major challenges facing interpreters of the prophetic works as coherent books. The careful attention to detail in the biblical texts themselves and in the history of scholarship shown in these essays offers a helpful model for scholars seeking to understand the ancient texts and appropriate them for new conditions.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In Old Testament studies, John Willis has been a reliable reference point, a mountain of critical information as attested in these essays, and a font of theological passion in his interpretation for as long as I can remember. It is a delight to salute a well-beloved colleague. It is an equal delight to commend to his readers the rich resources and the thoughtful scholarship reflected in this volume. Willis has taken the text with deep seriousness and he invites his readers to do the same."
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA

"This publication of the collected essays of John Willis on Isaiah and Micah is a real boon for scholars. Willis has thought long and hard about the issues in these two biblical books, and his articles on them, informed by a thorough knowledge of the scholarly discussion, are full of acute observations and creative suggestions. Wipf and Stock has done a great service by making these essays readily available to scholars again."
--J. J. M. Roberts, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ
