About-

An explosion of scholarly treatments of the book of Amos leaves one wondering: What do we know for sure about the prophet, his time, and his writing?

Gerhard Hasel synthesizes the latest rethinking of the prophet’s vocation, background, purpose, themes, and motifs to explain why Amos is “a microcosm for the study of all the prophetic writings of the Old Testament.” The most extensive bibliography on Amos ever compiled enables further study.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“A virtual tour de force of surveying some 800 separate contributions. . . . From now on serious studies of the prophet Amos will need to commence with this volume.”

Walter C. Kaiser Jr.

“Hasel, a well-established Old Testament theologian, has written an insightful and helpful analysis of the most important critical issues surrounding the book of Amos. He demonstrates depth of research and thought, as well as a readable style.”

Tremper Longman III
