Amos: A Mentor Commentary
I have become a collector of commentaries ever since my seminary days in the 1990s. As such, I am only going to recommend the best overall commentary for each book of the Bible on this site. (Before each minor prophet recommendation, let me first say that every preacher/teacher should have a copy of James Montgomery Boice's two volume set on the Minor Prophets on his/her bookshelf. That's the starting point, in my opinion). For the book of Amos specifically, I appreciate the depth of insight both academically and practically that Smith offers in this his stand-alone commentary on Amos. (I am also a fan of J. Alec Motyer's commentary in the Bible Speaks Today series, but Smith provides more depth overall).
Informed exposition with an eye to structure; sensitive to social implications of text. Evangelical. [Full Review]
