The role of prophecy in Zimbabwean socio-economic transformation: the case of Ezekiel Guti

Fairchild Siyawamwaya

Abstract


Perhaps the most enduring legacy of the Old Testament prophets is in the area of economic engagement as Elisha’s ministry speaks volume. In Zimbabwe, Ezekiel Guti has championed. This paper focuses on the economic engagement of the prophet Ezekiel Guti in his bid to improve the lives of the underside of history and how this resonates with the prophetic vocation of Elisha. The paper, through canonical approach, typological comparative analysis, and literature review contends that the prophet Ezekiel Guti is a quintessence to demonstrate that the engagement of prophets in economic initiatives is vital in contemporary times.

Keywords: prophet, socio-economic transformation, talents
