Amos by Francis I. Andersen
Book DescriptionThe life and mission of Amos the shepherd and prophet have always fascinated students of the Old Testament. This rancher-farmer from Tekoa, summoned dramatically by Yahweh to prophesy to Israel under the kingship of Jeroboam II (eighth century B.C.E.) about the corruption, injustice, and religious insincerity of his time, has intrigued scholars for centuries. Was Amos' message one of judgment and retribution only, or also of redemption? Noted scholars Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman, authors of the critically acclaimed Hosea, team up to examine and explain this critical segment of the Bible. Using new insights and modern methods, the authors interpret the text clearly, enthusiastically, and with startling perception. Readers will gain a new understanding of the historical, literary, and religious dimensions of the book of Amos.

Habakkuk, Hardback (December 2007)
The book of "Habakkuk" (one of the twelve Minor Prophets) is an intensely personal testimony played out against a highly political backdrop. This book examines "Habakkuk" as a work of sophisticated theological inquiry and as an artistic creation.
Micah, Paperback (December 2007)
One of the twelve Minor Prophets, Micah unwaveringly spoke God's message to Israel - a message filled with judgment but also laced with the promise of redemption. Micah combined poetic complexity and literary sophistication to compel his audience to respond. This work examines the features of "Micah's" biblical Hebrew and prophetic discourse.
