The Prophetic Critique of the Priority of the Cult
A Study of Amos 5:21–24 and Isaiah 1:10–17
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Lafferty shows that Amos and Isaiah seek neither mere social justice nor an abolition of the cult but a reprioritization of interpersonal activities in favor of justice and righteousness. This is a major original contribution to scholarship."
