The LORD roars from Zion and thunders from Jerusalem; the pastures of the shepherds dry up, and the top of Carmel withers.' So begins the prophecy of Amos! Why does the Lord roar?

Michael Bentley competently leads us through the prophecy, opening it up and applying it powerfully and relevantly to readers today.
