Besides speaking prophetically, the book’s subjects thought as prophets and viewed their roles as prophetic. Ideas about prophecy influenced their readings of history and shaped their works, which include large-scale texts adapting and varying biblical forms. Finally, they were substantively prophetic in unfolding visions of the future with meaning today.
