HARARE, Zimbabwe (PRWEB) January 22, 2015
In his new book “Prophetic Figures of the Old Testament” (published by AuthorHouse UK), author Nyamayabo Mashavakure presents an analysis of prophecy to discover its genesis by way of studying the Bible’s Old Testament.
Mashavakure’s new book considers, analyzes the idea of prophecy in terms of people, events, objects and places in whom and through which the phenomenon of prophecy seems to be fully expressed and represented in the Bible.
By centering his attention on the Old Testament, Mashavakure hopes to help readers understand the geographical, cultural and religious origins of the term “prophecy” and its applications to modern society, and mainly, modern faiths.
“Religion, in general, and biblical studies in particular, is an area that has always fascinated me from early in my schooling years,” Mashavakure says. “It tends to be everything that humanity wants to be, everything that humanity and its life can be. Many people are enthralled by the prophet concept and, it may not be a bad idea to wander about in the Bible, having a taste of what persons originally associated with the title of prophet went through.”
