Thus Sayeth the Lord
A Fresh Take on the Prophets
Read the Bible, and you’ll quickly run into the prophets — those sometimes wild and weird messengers of the Lord. Most of them didn’t want the job. Why? Because it usually involved telling people that they were doing it wrong (which always goes over well). But when they did what God asked them to do … wow. This book will introduce you to the prophets in a way you might find startling, challenging, and probably not to your grandmother’s liking.
“Here is Julie Davis at her best: reading stories and telling stories. She knows that narrative is the lifeblood of a family. She shows us where we fit in God’s grand scheme.” — Mike Aquilina, executive vice-president, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
“With Thus Sayeth the Lord, author Julie Davis is inviting us to take a walk on the wild side of the life of faith by investigating the prophets. … Here, in often humorous, sometimes deadly serious, prose, we get to know who these prophets were, what they were saying, and how we can try to ‘live with’ their often startling and bizarre pronouncements. Davis’ wit and the casual accessibility of her language make this a galloping read that is both fun and intelligent.” — Elizabeth Scalia, editor-at-large, Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, and author of Little Sins Mean a Lot (OSV).
“I hear all the time how the prophets of the Old Testament are a vast treasury waiting to be unlocked, but I’ve never been able to find the key. … Finally, I have a way to approach and appreciate the prophets that is clear, accessible, and captivating!” — Tommy Tighe, author of The Catholic Hipster Handbook and Catholic Hipster: The Next Level
