Industry Reviews

'Here, then, we have a first rate introduction to recent work on the prophets. It will prove invaluable for teaching, and I am sure that library copies will rapidly become well worn and heavily marked as a succession of undergraduates work through them for their essays. It is greatly to be hoped that ... the Cambridge University Press will speedily issue a paperback edition ... It is an excellent book.' The Expository Times
