Joel's arresting imagery - blasting trumpet, darkened sun and marching hosts - has shaped the church's eschatological vision of a day of wrath. Amos's ringing indictments - callous oppression, heartless worship and self-seeking gain - have periodically awakened the conscience of God's people. Twenty-five-hundred years later, those prophetic words still speak powerfully. David Hubbard's commentary is a valuable guide to the fascinating world and challenging word of these two prophets, and shows how Joel and Amos addressed Israel's mind and heart.
