Amos was a stern prophet with a serious message. Far from being seeker friendly, he was tough and direct in an age similar to ours: prosperous, self-sufficient and for the most part having forgotten God. Because the spiritual and living conditions were so similar to our day, there is much we can learn from this faithful Old Testament prophet.

Dr. Fred Wood has spent a lifetime of both loving and teaching his sheep. Throughout the commentary, you will soon hear his soft heart amid the harsh judgments of God from the tongue of Amos. Serious Bible readers will enjoy the clarity of thought and exegetical prowess Dr. Wood brings to the task. Blending grammatical accuracy with a wealth of knowledge related to customs, manners, culture, geography and ancient history, this book provides insight into Amos' uncompromising message and application to today's contemporary world.
