'Alec Motyer has clearly got the spirit of Amos in his blood. He loves the prophet from Tekoa and takes endless pains to give full weight to every syllable of the prophecy.'
Michael Green, theologian and author of over 70 books

Extravagance, greed and exploitation were the most notable features of the society in which Amos lived. Standards had gone to pot. Authority and the rule of law were despised, and national leadership, while revelling in the publicity and dignity of position, seemed to be contributing to the complete breakdown of law and order.

Thus, Alec Motyer exposes and explains the astonishingly relevant - but never popular - message of the prophet Amos.

The Bible Speaks Today series covers every book of the Old and New Testaments, as well as Bible themes that run through the whole of Scripture. These revised editions are redesigned inside and out and have been sensitively updated with contemporary language and Bible translations to help you follow, study and teach the Bible in today's world.
