A Cry for Justice
Stuart L. Love
Insights into the book of Amos.
Eight centuries before Jesus Christ walked this earth, a prophet named Amos denounced the society he saw around him. What he condemned in and around ancient Israel - the wealthy oppressing the poor, idolatry corrupting worship, and a host of other vices - parallels to a remarkable degree our own society's conditions. In this short, well-written study, Stuart Love takes the reader through a directed reading of the entire book of Amos, offering the seeker opportunities to reflect on both the ancient text and its applications for the 21st-century world.
