We do not know a lot about the prophet, Amos, except that he was a "herdman" am0714. God chooses people from all walks of life. 8th century B.C.

The Lord speaks against the nations
Judah and Israel judged
Message against all Israel with the prophet's authority
Like cattle, correction not accepted
Repentance; the day of the Lord
Warnings to those on their mountains (divided kingdom)
Locusts and the plumb line; Amaziah
Spiritual famine
Destruction and restoration
