An investigation of the historical, compositional, and literary dimensions of the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible.  An exploration of how the message of the biblical prophets integrates the theological traditions of the past with the distinctive socio-cultural realities of their own context.  Central to these investigations will be our study of these biblical texts in conjunction with relevant outside readings as well as contemporary ministerial issues and challenges with which they intersect.
