The Lord Roars: Recovering the Prophetic Voice for Today Hardcover -

by Carroll R. M. Daniel


From the rear cover

"A new way to encounter the prophets"

The world today cries out for a prophetic word to the chaos, unrest, and destructiveness of our times. In The Lord Roars, leading Old Testament ethicist M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas) highlights three key ethical concerns of the Old Testament prophets--justice, worship, and hope--and shows how they can speak into our world.

"Carroll, easily one of our best scholars and teachers on the prophets, offers a concise and erudite--indeed, ideal--introduction to these all-important messengers of God. Carroll focuses on selected texts from Amos, Isaiah, and Micah while at the same time engaging everything from Don Quijote and Charles Dickens to immigration, the Inquisition, liberation theology, and much, much more. A masterful treatment."
--Brent A. Strawn, Duke University

"Perhaps some of us employ the adjective prophetic hastily or uncritically, but many more of us are reluctant to heed the words of prophets--even the prophets identified in the Bible. Carroll demonstrates why and how biblical prophets speak to a myriad of social issues, including many that we presently face. His rigorous exegesis, historical analysis, and cultural awareness converge to give Bible readers a better understanding of Scripture's prophetic tradition and how it applies right now."
--Dennis R. Edwards, North Park Theological Seminary

"The Lord Roars has helped me see how the prophetic imagination in the canonical biblical text can orient my motivations to see theologically and work ethically toward a better world. From a hermeneutic of trust, Carroll invites the reader to carefully consider what the word of God offers as a witness to a more just and less violent world conceived through theo-poetic justice. Manifestly, Carroll's proposal challenges today's Westernized Christian visions of a world trapped in left-wing and right-wing political ideologies."
--Oscar Garca-Johnson, Fuller Theological Seminary

"The Lord Roars offers a powerful call toward living a prophetically formed ethic grounded in the biblical prophets Amos, Isaiah, and Micah. This call is desperately needed in our fractured world. Carroll's unique lens of poetics and literary imagination offers a new way to encounter the prophets. Readers are empowered not only to read and learn but to respond responsibly. The roar of the Lord is a call we all need to hear and heed."
--Beth M. Stovell, Ambrose Seminary
