Amos of Israel is an intriguing, five-week study program that takes up the major themes of this prophet of Israel within the context of the challenges of the present day. Drawing on examples from John Grisham’s novel, The Accused, it is sometimes confronting to realise how our lives may be just as easily seduced away from God as those of the people Amos confronted. This is truly a study for our times and includes an excellent introduction to one of the most important prophets of the Bible. Bos offers easy suggestions for groups to follow. His scholarship is very helpful, and, at the end of the process, one will have gained a deeper appreciation of what is expected of God’s people, individually and corporately.
