The Prophets

Prophecy in the Bible is less about telling the future than it is about calling people back to a relationship with God.  The Hebrew notion of prophecy of the foretelling sort has more to do with pattern than what we in the west think of a prediction.  There are prophets who speak about the future, notably Daniel and Ezekiel, but always in the context of deliverance and the messiah.

There are other prophets in the Bible that are part of the narrative.  They serve, among other things, to aggravate and/or advise the king.  These are known as the non-writing prophets and include Elijah, Elisha, Samuel, and Nathan.  Samuel actually has two books named for him but he is the main or perhaps unifying character rather than the author.
