About this class

As we shall see, prophetic leadership emerges in response to an acute awareness that things are not as they could have been, or as they ought to be. It is a response, in other words, to a sense of crisis. Today, as we face the numerous overlapping crises of our own time, we are in dire need of prophetic leaders and role models. The prophets of the Old Testament, and all those who have sought to follow in their footsteps, can provide some of the guidance and inspiration we so desperately need today.
