God sent prophets at critical times to call the people back to Him. Prophets proclaimed the consequences of continued sin, called people to repentance, and declared God's faithful love. This study examines who the prophets were, their role during their time, and the meaning of their messages for our own time. In this 10 session study discover how God is constantly calling you to a deeper relationship, as well as the ways you are called to be the voice of God to others.
