  • This volume includes the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel.

    In the language of the Bible, the words prophet, prophecy etc. have quite a broad meaning, but all refer, primarily, to the idea of speaking in the name of God.

    The entire Old Testament could be said to be prophetical, but some books carry the names of specific prophets or teachers, twelve minor prophets and four major - a distinction based on the length of the texts.

    The books of the major prophets - Isaiah, Jeremiah (with Lamentations and Baruch), Ezekiel and Daniel - go to make up this volume of the Navarre Bible.

    Like the other volumes in the standard edition of the Navarre Bible, prepared by Navarre Universitys theology faculty, this volume 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 Saint J. Escriv?í, who initiated the Navarre Bible project.

    The seven volumes of the Old Testament are (1) Pentateuch, (2) Joshua-Kings, (3) Chronicles-Maccabees, (4) The Psalms, (5) Wisdom Books, (6) Major Prophets and (7) Minor Prophets.
