In The Prophets, Abraham Heschel introduced me to the idea of the Pathos of God: God’s concern for mankind. The official definition of Pathos is “a quality that evokes pity or sadness.” God is concern with people. Concerned with such a degree that he speaks about judgement, love, and concern through prophets.
This book consists of two volumes and it covers the major prophets of the Old Testament as well as overall similarities and differences between them. It’s a great introduction to each of the prophets and this will help me in my reading of book 1 in my 2020 reading list, the Bible.
