Author of “Women Prophets of the Old Testament” and “Messengers of God: A Survey of Old Testament Prophets,” Kieran Larkin, illuminates us on the stories, challenges, and triumphs of the, often overlooked, women prophets in his newest book.
The Old Testament, or Hebrew Scriptures, has been a source of spiritual inspiration for hundreds of millions of believers throughout the ages. Center stage in the Old Testament is a body of literature by and about the prophets—messengers of God who tried to keep God’s people on the right path. You know their names—Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel—or do you? Are you acquainted with Deborah, Huldah, Miriam and Noadiah? For far too long, the women prophets have never been accorded the respect and attention they deserve, but they delivered God’s messages with the same passion, commitment and urgency as the men. This book is written to acknowledge and celebrate the prophetesses—and put these women on the pedestal they deserve to occupy.
