Description

Allen R. Guenther brings an evangelical believers church perspective to the study of two eighth-century B.C. prophets. He explores theological and practical implications of their message, which he applies to the contemporary church. This work compares Israel’s distinctive religion, influenced by Baal-worshiping Phoenician neighbors, with faith in Judah. In his own marriage, Hosea dramatizes God’s redeeming love. Amos’s exposure of shallow piety and injustice brings him into confrontation with the official priest at Bethel. For both prophets, the Lord’s judgment is to lead on to repentance and restoration.430 Pages.
