"Premnath is able to reflect on the socioeconomic practices in eighth-century Israel in a way that greatly illuminates the texts of the prophets. While Premnath stays very close to sociohistorical realities, the book is, moreover, a rich and suggestive hint about how to think differently about current pressures to move toward globalization and the concentration of wealth and power in ways that override human community in its deep vulnerability."
In this powerful sociological introduction, D. N. Premnath brings together the social reality of eighth century B.C.E. Israel and Judah and the prophetic oracles of Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah to explore the significance of their prophetic message and vision in today's context. He focuses on various dimensions of land accumulation by the upper class and the effect on the poor. Premnath uniquely uses a systemic sociological approach, incorporating both comparative and historical data, to reconstruct the social reality of the period and to reveal aspects of the oracles not covered by previous exegesis. The sociohistorical section will be of keen interest to students as well as to scholars.
