And so this volume turns its attention to the world revealed by the
eighth century prophets. This is a call for a new paradigm for reading
Scripture and a new paradigm for preaching the world revealed in
Scripture. The eighth century prophets - Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and
Micah - imagined the world as God intended it, ruled in the
righteousness and justice originally illuminated in the Torah. Isaiah
holds up a vision of Yahweh creating a world in which is messiah will
rule in a spirit of wisdom and knowledge of the Lord. Humans who are
filled with this knowledge will treat one another with respect and
dignity, which in turn will influence the natural world. The wolf then
will live in peace with the lamb and the lion with the calf (Isa
11:1-9). This is the world God is bringing about, the world in which the
prophets call people to participate. As we launch this fifth
volume, our desire is to renew our incentive to preach the eighth
century prophets, to enlighten the power of God's Word to change lives,
and in this process invite the church to be shaped by the world of
Scripture and to participate in the radical new world that God is
creating."" - From the Introduction
