By Hinckley G. Mitchell / N. J. Bartlett & Co. / 1893
This critical examination of Amos from prestigious Old Testament scholar H. G. Thomas covers a range of issues in interpreting prophetic literature. Mitchell includes introductory studies on Amos the historical person, the date of his writing, and the composition of the biblical book. The bulk of Thomas’ study is a critical commentary on his translation of Amos. Mitchell also includes studies on Amos’ place in the Bible and alongside other prophetic literature in the Bible.
