Inspired Speech was originally published as a Festschrift to honor the work of Professor Herbert B. Huffmon, Professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at Drew University. Thirty-three of his colleagues and students contributed to the work, which explores various aspects of prophecy in ancient Israel and its neighboring cultures.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Filled with valuable contributions from leading authorities, this volume is a worthy tribute to the person of Herb Huffmon and the impact of his career as a mentor, scholar, and colleague. Readers interested in prophecy in the Hebrew Bible and the ancient Near East will find this book particularly useful." - Steven L. McKenzie, Rhodes College, Memphis TN, USA--Sanford Lakoff
"Herb Huffmon is among the longest-serving scholars in Old Testament studies of that remarkable generation of US scholars who, in the second half of the twentieth century, recovered the centrality of the Old Testament for theological study, and who brought to that work great erudition, energy, and passion. Over the long period of his scholarly career, Huffmon has made extraordinary contributions to the common work of the discipline. This collection of essays in his honor, in breadth and depth, is an offer that is commensurate with his own status in the field. The contributors of these essays represent the best in the field and the essays in sum are a "state of the art" reflection of on-going work. The essays range over a wide field of Huffmon's own interests from Ancient Near Eastern studies to Israel's prophets to daring interpretive experimentation. The book will be a welcome reference point for continued study and an enduring attestation to Huffmon's own important work in the field." - Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary, USA--Sanford Lakoff
