Much study has taken place of the prophetic and apocalyptic
writings in recent decades, but the relationship between the two
has been little explored. A major explicit debate on the question
is very much needed and is now provided. This collection of essays
addresses the subject from a variety of points of view, including
studies on the issues of definitions, ancient Near Eastern
"prophecies," social anthropology and modern apocalyptic movements.
In the introduction, Lester Grabbe argues that many scholars
operate with subconscious assumptions about how apocalyptic
writings relate to the prophetic writings, but that many of these
assumptions now need to be questioned in the light of the essays in
this volume. Such a comprehensive attempt to tackle the main
theoretical issues arising from the study of the prophetic and the
apocalyptic has not been attempted for some time. This volume
brings fresh questions and insights that both specialists and
students will want to consider.
