The Theology of the Land in Amos 7-9


In Amos, the language about land is used extensively. However, this subject of the land has never been studied as a topic in its own right, only as part of other themes. This work follows a synchronic reading of Amos and employing textual, literary and historical criticism the author carries out a careful analysis of the land. Although the findings are set in the context of the entire book, the study focuses on chapters 7-9 to explore the topic closer.
