From Old Revelation to New
by Simon J. De Vries
List Price: Paperback $30.00

Sigler Price: Paperback $15.00 

Paperback - 383 pp
ISBN 080280683X


From Old Revelation to New takes an important step beyond studies by Robert Carroll and Michael Fishbane in exploring inner-biblical exegesis.  Simon De Vries attempts to solve the problem of ideology and technique in the expansion of prophetic prediction by schools of redactors.  By analyzing those prophetic predictions that employ temporal expressions as introductory transitions -- expressions such as "in that day," "behold, days are coming," and "at the end of days" -- De Vries demonstrates how futuristic expectation was expanded and reshaped within the prophetic collection toward an eventual canonical form.

Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive, even monumental analysis and synthesis of the redaction history of the entire prophetic corpus in the Old Testament . . . Dr Vries's book is a paradigm nor only for the integrity of scholarly work but also for the ethical integrity in cross-historical, and for the matter cross-cultural, encounter . . . It represents the most detailed and comprehensive treatment of the subject to date, and will hold that place indefinitely.

A major achievement, Simon De Vries has opened up a whole new vista on the way in which prophecy is itself every bit as intriguing and interesting as law, once it became a written document.

Ronald E. Clements

De Vries's comprehensive and consequent scrutiny, along different lines of approach, has managed to explain better than before many aspects and problems of the prophetic books [regarding] their formal character as well as their content and message.  I have learned much from De Vries's meticulous investigation, and so will the rest of the learned world, with regard to the eschatological sayings, traditions, and books of the Old Testament prophets.
