“Prophets,” “prophecy,” and “prophetic” are the three words that form the core of this research area. Prophets interpret the present in light of a specific type of divination practices. Divination was and is a resource to provide a human client, individual, or group access to divine information about the present and the future. Prophets work within the institution and practices called prophecy. The artifacts left by the prophets are prophetic, whether literature or speech. The material described in this bibliography focuses on the prophetic books. These books are referred to as the Prophets in many circles but sometimes are referred to as the Latter Prophets (Judges through Kings have the designation the Former Prophets.).
