In the language of the Bible, “prophecy” has quite a broad meaning, but refers, primarily, to the idea of “speaking in the name of God”. The entire Old Testament could be said to be prophetic, but some books carry the names of four “major” and twelve “minor” prophets – a distinction based on their length. Not all of them easy to date, the authors and editors of these books in the “roll of the twelve prophets” lived at times between the eighth century and second century BC.

The Psalms aside, the books of the prophets are the Old Testament sources most often referred to in the New. Their message covers all aspects of Israelite and Christian faith – belief in One God, his chosen people, the Messiah and the path to salvation.

Like the other volumes in the Standard Edition of the Navarre Bible, prepared by Navarre University’s theology faculty, this book contains the full biblical text in the Revised Standard Version and the New Vulgate together with extensive commentaries. The commentaries, or notes, help to explain the doctrinal and practical meaning of the scriptural text, drawing on a rich variety of sources, Church documents, the exegesis of Fathers and Doctors, and the works of prominent spiritual writers, particularly St Josemariá Escrivá, who initiated the Navarre Bible project.
