Originally published as part of the acclaimed Sheffield Guides series, this helpful study guide is designed to meet the needs of students and general readers in a concise, accessible and affordable format. The contents of this introduction do not mirror the progression of the themes of the book of Amos itself. The reader starts near the end with reports of Amos's visions and the question of his status, and moves to Israel in the context of its neighbours. The reader is then invited to turn to more general discussion of literary issues in Amos. Only then is the familiar starting point of Amos's social and religious critique handled, while a final chapter assesses the wider religious and theological significance of the book.
-Publisher

A study of the Old Testament book of Amos, structured around issues of theme and social and religious critique.
-Publisher

'Amos is a book to which many people turn early in any serious engagement with Old Testament studies. And it is easy in fact to understand its contemporary popularity. Its tones of social protest, religious critique, and universalism are immediately perceived, and enjoy perennial appeal...'.
-Publisher
