The Hebrew Prophets

Selections Annotated & Explained

Translation & Annotation by Rabbi Rami Shapiro
Foreword by Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi

5.5 x 8.5, 224 pp, Quality Paperback


Fresh translation and facing-page annotations bring the
compelling wisdom of the Hebrew prophets to life.

Hundreds of commentaries and dozens of Bible translations make the Hebrew prophets available to modern-day readers, but most often these sources focus on history or apologetics, losing the reader who is searching for spiritual insight.
The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained  makes the wisdom of these timeless teachers available to readers with no previous knowledge of the prophets. With fresh, contemporary commentary, Rami Shapiro reveals the central themes covered by all the prophets: moving from ignorance to wisdom, injustice to justice, cruelty to compassion, and despair to joy.
This unique look at the Hebrew Prophets sharpens the personal nature of their message and highlights their critique of the spiritual errors we all face in life, challenging readers to correct those errors and experience a life of awakening and joy.

“The introduction alone makes this book a worthwhile addition to your library.”

Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter

“A valuable introduction to understanding passages of the [Hebrew Scriptures], fully accessible to readers who have little or no knowledge of the Hebrew Bible or Judaism.”

Midwest Book Review

Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, the inspiration of the Jewish Renewal movement, is widely recognized as perhaps the most important Jewish spiritual teacher of the second half of the twentieth century. He is on the faculty of religious studies at Naropa University and author of First Steps to a New Jewish Spirit: Reb Zalman’s Guide to Recapturing the Intimacy & Ecstasy in Your Relationship with God.
