The overall best commentary on Amos. Though highly technical, Paul's approach makes this commentary still accessible for a wide audience. Most strongly recommended.
I can count on one hand the number of commentaries in the Hermeneia series that I find very helpful. This one is probably the only one I would enthusiastically recommend. It is geared toward a more scholarly audience, but it is packed with helpful insight into the meaning of Amos. Very highly recommended.
Excellent analysis of text with an emphasis on Ancient Near Eastern parallels and backgrounds. [Full Review]
