Thus Sayeth the Lord

Thus Sayeth the Lord

A Fresh Take on the Prophets  

Julie Davis

Two things to know about this book before you buy it:

  1. Nobody likes a prophet.
  2. You're a prophet. Or at least, you're supposed to be.

Before you go running as far and as fast as you can (exactly like some prophets we know), get a grip, have a seat, and read Thus Sayeth the Lord: A Fresh Take on the Prophets.

If you don't feel qualified for the prophet gig, you're in good company. Most of the prophets in the Bible didn't want the job. Why? Because it usually involved telling a bunch of people that they were doing it wrong (which always goes over well). But when they did what God asked them to do … wow. That's the call for us as Catholics, since by baptism we "share in the priesthood of Christ, in his prophetic and royal mission" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1268).

This fresh take on the prophets will introduce you to our biblical role models in a way you might find startling, challenging, and probably not to your grandmother's liking. In this book, you will meet:

  • Moses - eighty-year-old freedom fighter
  • Elijah - nuking the pagans
  • Deborah - kicking butt and taking names
  • Hosea - not family friendly
  • Samuel - the only hope in a desperate hour
  • Amos - sticking it to the man
  • Anna and Simeon - God's tag team
  • Jonah - mad as hell and running from God
  • And a dozen more

Dig into their stories, missions, and messages, and learn how you can take the truth of Christ to the world. Today.
