    Including the Stranger

    Foreigners in the Former Prophets

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by David G. Firth
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    The Old Testament, particularly the Former Prophets, has been regarded as having a negative attitude towards foreigners. In this NSBT volume, David Firth argues that the Former Prophets subvert the exclusivist approach in order to show that the people of God are not defined by ethnicity but rather by their willingness to commit themselves to the purposes of Yahweh.
