"Hemchand Gossai has gathered key emphases from the prophetic corpus with remarkable clarity and enabled a sharp and thoughtful connection to contemporary issues. The prophets live again in this insightful book!"
--Terence Fretheim, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN
"The voice of the Hebrew prophets advocating justice and equality for all humans in rebuke of the beneficiaries of exploitative economics and retaliatory force comes to piercing clarity in Gossai's book. His hermeneutic of engagement draws the ancestral pioneers of Scripture and their modern heirs into a rigorous theopolitical discourse eschewing definitive solutions while denying the other popular alternative of dismissing ancient texts as expired and irrelevant."
--Paul D. Hanson, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge, MA
"With wonderful lucidity, Gossai takes the concerns of Israel's ancient prophets to the global marketplace today. He underscores the self-destructive, violent nature of the 'empire' then and now, and challenges readers to connect with the prophetic word so as to act prophetically, imaginatively, and responsibly in the face of pervasive inequities. Gossai has blared a wake-up call to us all, especially to those engaged in self-serving personal, political, social, religious, or intellectual efforts."
