God used Hosea and Amos--one right after the other--to announce to the
Northern Kingdom (Israel) that God's patience had at last ended and that the hour
of decision had arrived. These prophets challenged Israel to repent now or
face God's immediate judgment and endure pitiless conquest and plundering at
the hands of the merciless Assyrians.
Both prophecies end with the
assurance of God's abiding love for His people and His absolute pledge of their
cleansing and restoration.
Two biblical scholars encourage students
to understand and be challenged by these biblical events that so closely parallel
those of our own times. Their simple, organized commentary will prove valuable
to students at any level, individually or in a group.
