From the author: Madelon Maupin
I encountered Amos in depth in one of my first seminary courses. Imagine the astonishment—that one would spend a whole semester on nine short chapters of an Old Testament book! Yet I found that it still wouldn’t be adequate time to delve into the richness, breadth, and depth that this prophet brings to the whole of the Hebrew Bible.
More than an academic interest, however, Amos represents for me the ultimate intersection of faith with daily life: to what degree do we challenge the injustices around us, not so much from a political viewpoint, but from our understanding of God?
Studying Amos should come with a warning: It won’t leave you where it found you!
