Ever wonder what it would be like to encounter an Old Testament prophet? Or to hear one of the apostles preach a sermon? Authors Fr. Joseph Ponessa and Laurie Watson Manhardt help bring the Word of God as preached by the prophets and apostles home to the modern Christian. Each chapter gives historical background to these books of the Bible to help set the works in historical context. Questions with each chapter encourage us to let the Scriptures lead us to repentance and conversion.

“Come and See”: Prophets and Apostles will help you hear the Word of God as spoken by Daniel, Nehemiah, Joel, Habbakuk, Micah, the Apostle James, and other lesser-known biblical figures—bringing their teachings home to the modern-day Christian.

Some of the outstanding features of this study include:
