"Path of the Prophets is the most significant new contribution to our understanding of the prophets so far in the twenty-first century--filled with new insights, important for Jewish scholarship, and a joy to read for anyone who has ever grappled with the meaning and contemporary relevance of the Bible."--Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine

--Rabbi Michael Lerner (09/18/2017)
"Schwartz's new book works as both an intelligent class textbook, complete with appended study guide, and absorbing personal reading."--Ray Olson, Booklist--Ray Olson"Booklist" (02/15/2018)
"Rabbi Barry L. Schwartz identifies the prophetic moment in the lives of the eighteen biblical figures that we know as the Prophets and he shows us their relevance today in his new book."--Reviews by Amos Lassen--Reviews by Amos Lassen
"An enjoyable, thought-provoking, and revelatory book. While the intended audience might be Jewish, I can say, as a Christian pastor, this book will speak important truths to Christians as well. This wonderfully written book explores the ethical implications of the spiritual life in conversation with eighteen persons found in the Hebrew Bible."--Robert Cornwall, Ponderings on a Faith Journal-- (03/22/2018)
"Rabbi Schwartz brings new life to the men and women of the Bible, ordinary people who did extraordinary things--and challenges us to do the same, to make the most of life's journey."--Rabbi Sally J. Priesand, author of Judaism and the New Woman

"The prophets call us passionately to justice--but, alas, the prophetic books are not easy to understand. Schwartz has done the seemingly impossible by delving clearly into the prophets' ethical dilemmas and urging readers to face those injustices of yesterday and today. As we yearn for religious voices that will challenge entrenched ideologies, this is a desperately needed volume."--Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president emeritus, Union for Reform Judaism-- (09/18/2017)
"This title would be a fine addition to any collection used by adult readers."--Arthur G./I>--Arthur G. Quinn "Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews "
