In this second volume of his trilogy of Old Testament introductions, Paul Tarazi sets ut to demystify many of the enigmas of the Old Testament. He examines in detail Amos as a prototype of all the prophets and then focuses solely on the unique message and characteristics of each of the others and is therefore able to treat important issues in detail.
