Truth for Today Commentary: The Minor Prophets 1 - Hosea, Joel, and Amos
A complete exegesis and application of the Old and New Testament Scriptures by faithful scholars of the churches of Christ. Each volume in this historic work provides remarks on the verses of the text covered, and chapters end with application sections which offer suggestions for developing sermons and Bible classes.
Hosea, Joel and Amos demonstrate God's undending love coupled with His intolerance of sin. The prophets' call to repent was accentuated by Hosea's marriage to a prostitute and Joel's account of a locust plague, as well as a host of vivid metaphors, rich visual images, and other figures of speech. Amos pronounced judgment against the surrounding nations and narrowed the focus until his oracles denounced God's own people, Judah and then Israel.
