God used Hosea and Amos—one right after the other—to announce to the Northern Kingdom (Israel) that God's patience had at last ended and that the hour of decision had arrived. These prophets challenged Israel to repent now or face God's immediate judgment and endure pitiless conquest and plundering at the hands of the merciless Assyrians.
Both prophecies end with the assurance of God's abiding love for His people and His absolute pledge of their cleansing and restoration.
Two biblical scholars encourage students to understand and be challenged by these biblical events that so closely parallel those of our own times. Their simple, organized commentary will prove valuable to students at any level, individually or in a group.
