An investigation of the literary structure and rhetorical challenge that prompted the book's production. Moller argues that the book of Amos captures and presents the debate between Amos and his eighth-century audience. When read in the light of Israel's fall, the presentation of Amos struggling (and failing) to convince his contemporaries of the imminent divine punishment functions as a powerful warning to subsequent Judaean readers.

Recensioner i media

This is an important book on a stunning prophet (and his galvanizing Hebrew) on several counts. First, the footnoted and bibliography display a massive acquaintance with the study of the book of Amos over the past century. Second, Moller is refreshingly conservative in his respect for the integrity of the text and the provenance of the book. Third, our author is a skilled Hebraist with penetrating insights into the organizing structure of the entire book. Fourth, Moller makes a very persuasive case for retaining chapter nine as coming from the prophet Amos. Kerux, May 2005--Sanford Lakoff This is an important book on a stunning prophet.
