About "Hosea, Joel, and Amos (Westminster Bible Companion Series)"
Hosea, Joel, and Amos are the first three of the prophetic books that conclude the Old Testament. Often called the "minor prophets", they are anything but that -- theirs are important voices from the biblical tradition of the prophets and the issues they discuss became characteristic of Hebrew prophecy.Hosea and Amos are the first of the great classical prophets. Knowing their preaching, as well as Joel's, provides a foundation to understand all of the prophets of Israel. Bruce Birch shows how these prophets spoke to issues that dominated their times -- love, redemption, fidelity, renewal, authority, justice, righteousness, and inclusivity -- and that continue to have great relevance today.
