Teaching Amos is the latest contribution to the Teach the Bible series, published by The Proclamation Trust & Christian Focus Publications. The fundamental conviction underlying the series is that when the Bible is faithfully taught, God's voice is clearly heard. Few commentaries are written specifically with the preacher or Bible teacher in mind, and with the sermon or Bible talk as the point of reference. The preacher, the sermon or talk, and the listener are the 'key' drivers in this series.
'Teaching Amos' is written by Dr Bob Fyall, who has a particular passion for preaching and teaching the Old Testament. He is author of a number of books, including the Focus on the Bible volume on Daniel.
Having first outlined a number of possible approaches to constructing a series of sermons or talks on Amos, Bob unlocks the text based on a suggested structure of nine sermons or talks. Individual chapters are specifically geared toward working from text to sermon, combining rigorous exposition with relevant application, always with an eye to the main teaching point of the passage.
This volume will not only encourage better preaching on Amos, but serve as a timely reminder of the striking relevance of the prophet's message for today.
Have you ever watched a T.V. program or read a newspaper article where a commentator clumsily illustrates his complete ignorance of Christianity and its claims How often have you rolled your eyes and immediately discounted what is being said saying to yourself Well why should I listen to them when they obviously havent got a clue How then can we expect to witness effectively to those of the Muslim faith if all that we know of Islam is picked up from passing references in the media This fascinating book provides Christians with a simple description of the origins of Islam what Muslims believe and how it affects their attitudes worldview everyday life and culture. Practical guidelines are given for relating to Muslims in a culturally appropriate way as well as for witnessing effectively and caring for converts.
