The book comprises eight articles on ancient Near Eastern, especially Assyrian prophecy from journals and collective works, a German translation of all of the Neo-Assyrian prophetic texts, and an epilogue updating some of the topics dealt with in the earlier treatments of the matter. A comprehensive bibliography and indexes are included. The main assertions put forward in the book are the following: (1) The so-called “Assyrian” or “Arbela oracles” are prophetic sayings. (2) The phraseology and genres used have near counterparts in the Old Testament (especially “Deutero-Isaiah”). (3) The “Salvation Oracle for Israel” represents a re-interpretation of the earlier oracle of salvation for kings. (4) Prophecy of Salvation is the normal case of Ancient Near Eastern Prophecy including that among Israelites and Judaeans.

»Apart from the value of having this pioneering research so conveniently collected (and indeed, one or two of the papers deserve to be regarded as classics), Weippert has also taken the sensible decision not to attempt to update them.«
