The Message of Amos: The Day of the LionBy: J. A. Motyer
A major exposition of the prophet Amos, in which his call to relevant faith is championed. Alec Motyer exposes and explains the astonishingly relevant - but never popular - message of the prophet Amos. 'Affluence, exploitation and the profit motive were the most notable features of the society which Amos observed and in which he worked... 'Standards had gone to pot. Authority and the rule of law were despised, and national leadership, while revelling in the publicity and dignity of position ... seemed to be contributing to the complete breakdown of law and order.'
