Amos, Jonah, & Micah

Author: Joanna Hoyt
Publisher: Bellingham, WA : Lexham Press, [2019]. ©2019.
Series: Evangelical exegetical commentary.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
Throughout the Old Testament, Yahweh drew his prophets from the most unlikely circumstances. The minor prophets Amos, Jonah, and Micah were each called out of their ordinary lives to deliver timely messages-both to their original audiences and for us, today. While they're each unique, these three biblical books can be connected by the theological themes of divine justice, mercy, judgment, and repentance.

Abstract:

Throughout the Old Testament, Yahweh drew his prophets from the most unlikely circumstances. The minor prophets Amos, Jonah, and Micah were each called out of their ordinary lives to deliver timely messages-both to their original audiences and for us, today. While they're each unique, these three biblical books can be connected by the theological themes of divine justice, mercy, judgment, and repentance.
