Mr. Ellison sets out to repair the omission with his customary ability and insight. He deals firstly with the origin and development of the split between Israel and Judah, and goes on to set the prophets of the Northern Kingdom against the background of their times.
But what gives this book its main appeal is the skilful way in which the author makes the message of these men of the Old Testament living and relevant for the present day. As the reader progresses, he will find that the chosen men of God, who spoke as they were borne along by the Holy Spirit, still speak with freshness and vigour to contemporary society, a society whose ills are often uncomfortably akin to those dealt with so trenchantly and mercilessly by the prophets themselves.
