during the Hebrew Bible, God publications and saves his humans during the phrases of his prophets. whilst the prophets are silenced, the folk simply lose their method. What occurred after the incarnation, dying and resurrection of Christ? Did God fall silent?

The dominant place in Christian theology is that prophecy did certainly stop sooner or later some time past -if no longer with the outdated testomony prophets, then with John the Baptist, with Jesus, with the final apostle, or with the closure of the canon of the hot testomony. however, during the background of Christianity there have continuously been acclaimed saints and mystics -most of them women-who displayed prophetic features. lately, the charismatic revival in either Protestant and Catholic circles has once more raised the query of where and serve as of prophecy in Christianity. Scholarly theological attitudes towards Christian prophecy diversity from modest popularity to contempt. Mainstream systematic theology, either Protestant and Catholic, has normally marginalized or missed the present of prophecy. during this e-book, besides the fact that, Niels Christian Hvidt argues that prophecy has persevered in Christianity as an inherent and non-stop characteristic within the lifetime of the church. Prophecy by no means died, he argues, yet relatively proved its dynamism through mutating to fulfill new ancient stipulations. He provides a complete background of prophecy from old Israel to the current and heavily examines the advance of the theological discourse that surrounds it. all through, notwithstanding, there's continuously an information of the serious discernment required whilst comparing the charism of prophecy.

the controversy approximately prophecy, Hvidt indicates, results in a few profound insights in regards to the very nature of Christianity and the church. for instance, a few have argued that Christianity is an ideal nation and that each one that's required for salvation is attractiveness of its doctrines. Others have emphasised how God keeps to interfere and advisor his humans onto the precise course because the complete implementation of God's salvation in Christ continues to be distant. this can be the location that Hvidt forcefully and persuasively defends and develops during this formidable and demanding work.
