Mark Daniel Carroll R.’s book views chapters 3–6 of Amos in terms of biblical study and theological reflection, with particular emphasis on cultural context. Carroll seeks to describe the role of the prophetic biblical voice and makes the point that we should question, not blindly follow, those who speak for God in society.
With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Contexts for Amos are tagged and appear on mouse-over, linking to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference, which makes Contexts for Amos valuable for anyone who wants to study Amos from the standpoint of theological reflection—and anyone seeking to learn how to relate the text to the world we live in today.
