AMOS, PROPHET OF JUSTICE

This reinterpretation of the events in Amos' life- his origins as a shepherd boy of Judah- and his rise to preach against the tribute exacted from Judah by Israel- is intended to show in his beliefs the kernels of the modern concept of the goodness of God. As a narrative it moves well, though there is possibly less, interest in the life of an Amos than there would be in the life of a Luke. With Amos' knowledge of Israel stemming from his uncle Jedidiah, Judah's ambassador to Israel, suspense is built up through the question of salvery and brought to a climax with Amos' prophetic denouncements of Jeroboam.
