Fresh translation and facing-page annotations bring the
compelling wisdom of the Hebrew prophets to life.

Hundreds of commentaries and dozens of Bible translations make the Hebrew prophets available to modern-day readers, but most often these sources focus on history or apologetics, losing the reader who is searching for spiritual insight.
The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained  makes the wisdom of these timeless teachers available to readers with no previous knowledge of the prophets. With fresh, contemporary commentary, Rami Shapiro reveals the central themes covered by all the prophets: moving from ignorance to wisdom, injustice to justice, cruelty to compassion, and despair to joy.
This unique look at the Hebrew Prophets sharpens the personal nature of their message and highlights their critique of the spiritual errors we all face in life, challenging readers to correct those errors and experience a life of awakening and joy.

Praise for Rami Shapiro’s Work

“Shapiro offers the reader new insights into wonderful old texts. A gem—for the first-time reader as well as the one who returns again and again.”

Judith Hauptman, associate professor of Talmud, The Jewish Theological Seminary of America

“Rami Shapiro gives current voice to our sages who taught the inner guidance about two millennia ago. This is ageless wisdom in words that not only stimulate growth but that also echo deep and compassionate realization.”

Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal

Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, the inspiration of the Jewish Renewal movement, is widely recognized as perhaps the most important Jewish spiritual teacher of the second half of the twentieth century. He is on the faculty of religious studies at Naropa University and author of First Steps to a New Jewish Spirit: Reb Zalman’s Guide to Recapturing the Intimacy & Ecstasy in Your Relationship with God.
