Still Selling the Righteous

Full Product Description

This title investigates the composition history of the "Amos-text" by drawing on the influential works of Hans W Wolff and J Jeremias. 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. Over the last 30 years this pioneering series has established an unrivaled reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies and has attracted leading authors and editors in the field.The series takes many original and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from historical and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and more recent developments in cultural studies and reception history.
