In a previous article the author discussed the issue of social justice in the
prophetic books, with special emphasis on the role played by the land
promise. In that article he has concentrated on the prophet Micah and
come to the conclusion that the land promise, together with its conditions
and requirements, formed the basis of Micah's social criticism. In this
article he takes the matter further to determine whether this is also true
of the prophet Amos. His basic conclusion is that this is indeed the case.
Amos also relies heavily on the land promise as the basis for his criticism
of the many social injustices of his day. Even matters which at first seem
to have no bearing on land and land ownership are indeed closely connected
to elements of the land promise.
