Reviews - What do customers think about Amos, Hosea, And Micah: A Call to Justice (Six Weeks With the Bible)?

Catholic Perspectives On Social and Economic Justice  Feb 18, 2009
"Mind your own business" may be a common saying, but in this study guide we are shown that the message of the Bible as revealed through Amos, Hosea, and Micah is exactly the opposite. Other people's business is our business when they are suffering economic hardship ad oppression. We must pay attention to the poor, the disenfranchised, the helpless in our society.

Although these three books were written about seven centuries before Christ, their message is as timely today as then. Each prophet calls people to depart from their present courses in favor of a preferred end. None of them mince words but are often blunt as they level accusations of wrong doing and predict eternal punishment for those violating God's call to justice for all. Their purpose, reminiscent of the "fire and brimstone" preachers of Colonial America, was to call people to salvation, to reform their lives and society in line with God's justice so that they might experience His mercy and compassion. Their message was crystallized centuries later by St. Ignatius Loyola when he wrote: Love consists in sharing what one has and what one is with those one loves. Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words.

These three prophets may be thought of as messengers of doom; yet, they all end on a hopeful note, promising the joy of everlasting life for those who show compassion and justice for those who most need it, salvation for those who work actively for social and economic justice.

Amos in Chapter 5, verse 24 says, "But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." Micah succinctly sums up the message of the Old Testament in 6:8 when he gives a brief summary of what is necessary to live a godly life: " ...and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Hosea, often the most damning of the three, also ends on a hopeful note in 14:7-8 when he predicts "They shall again live beneath my shadow, they shall flourish as a garden, they shall blossom like the vine, their fragrance shall be like the wine of Lebanon."

The only drawback, in my opinion, to this study guide was that the complete books were not printed out in the text.. This has been done in other books in the series I have used. For this edition, you must refer back to your Bible for the complete text as the editor only used selected, albeit eloquent, passages from the three prophets. However, the well-crafted questions for application, the detailed guides to the readings, and the approach to prayer all all excellent and consistent with the rest of the series.
