This volume, Poetry and Prophecy, examines some of the favorite passages in the Old Testament. The Shepherd's Psalm, Isaiah's prophecy of the virgin birth and the "Wonderful Counselor," Ezekiel's dry bones, and Daniel in the lions' den - they are all here. The book surveys the rich poetry of Israel (Job-Song of Solomon) and then gives an overview of the books of prophecy (Isaiah-Malachi).
