Hardback
An investigation of the literary structure and rhetorical challenge that prompted the book's production. Moller argues that the book of Amos captures and presents the debate between Amos and his eighth-century audience. When read in the light of Israel's fall, the presentation of Amos struggling (and failing) to convince his contemporaries of the imminent divine punishment functions as a powerful warning to subsequent Judaean readers.

- Publisher In this text, Moller examines the book of Amos as a work of rhetoric, contructed as a debate between Amos and his audience that functions to warn later Judean readers of the dangers of ignoring the prophetic voice.
