The Lion Has Roared: An Exposition of Amos
The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy? (Amos 3:8)
Amos, a shepherd of southern Judah called to preach to the northern kingdom of Israel, courageously proclaimed God's message. He did so faithfully, despite the official opposition that came his way. In time Amos' words became a source of inspiration to all who stand in the prophetic stream, from the Hebrew prophets who followed him to evangelistic Christians in our day who know the transforming power of the Word.
This is a fantastic commentary. It is filled with both interesting background information and practical application. It is thorough yet never tedious; it is scholarly yet fascinating; it is convicting and yet inspiring. I would highly recommend it.
