Amos

Smith, Gary V.

Pricing details

$26.17
$29.99 MSRP

The book of Amos is full of wordplays, double entendres, pictorial visions, and direct statements of fact and judgement. Smith's job is to address the historical, stylistic and interpretative aspects of Amos: not just what is written, but also how and why the prophecies are recorded. Each chapter ends with him drawing together the interpretative threads arising from the passage.

This outstanding commentary seeks to exegete the text by considering the issues of textual criticism, structure, historical and literary background, unity (or lack of it) of the passage and the theological significance of the text. This commentary interacts with the leading non-evangelical and evangelical literature on Amos (both English and German) and presents a non-defensive evangelical perspective.

 

About the Author

Gary V. Smith is Professor of Old Testament at Midwestern Baptist Seminary, Kansas City.
