Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

In this lesson Dr. Creasy talks about Amos who he says was not a "highly trained prophet",” a "weeping prophet", or a "weird prophet", but a "country preacher who came to town". His prophecies are discussed in the context of a kingdom divided, following King David’s death and hundreds of years of civil war.

Publisher's Summary

Amos is "the country preacher who came to town" - not a professional prophet, but a tender of sycamore fig trees from the little town of Tekoa, just south of Bethlehem. God sends Amos to the northern kingdom of Israel to prophecy against it. Confronting the king and his priests, Amos tells the leaders precisely what will happen if they do not return to God: the northern kingdom of Israel will be destroyed by the Assyrians, and the high priest’s wife will become a prostitute in the city!

Join Logos Bible’s Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he highlights the social, political, and historical milieu of the era in which this most unlikely of prophets speaks.

    I generally listen to books that fill the gaps in my science and technology interests and my faith.

    Time for a refund! Hey Amazon, where's the QC. This is ridiculous. 15 words, really?
