Still Selling the Righteous : A Redaction-critical Investigation of Reasons for Judgment in Amos 2.6-16 Paperback / softback

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series

Description

This redaction-critical study interprets the reasons for judgment in Amos 2.6-16 in the literary context of each of the redactional compositions which, it is argued, underlie the Amos-text.

It is proposed that the Amos-text is both a theological work and a tractate of social criticism.

In earlier redactional compositions the dominant reasons for judgment concern mistreatment of the weak.

In the later redactional compositions these are overshadowed, in terms of length of text, by more theological reasons for judgment; however, these strengthen, rather than weaken, the force of the older reasons for judgment.
