The author demonstrates the striking relationship between satire and Hebrew prophecy. Reviewing the role of ridicule in both and analyzing questions of nature, structure, form and audience, Jemielity assesses the full range of satire in Hebrew prophecy. The features of the prophet's character similar to those of the satirist are investigated, as well as how the prophets used satire to answer attacks on their credibility.Table of ContentsSeries Preface Acknowledgments Preface Pt.
