In Ears to Hear: A Guide for the Interpretation of the Bible I provide principles, methods, and procedures for Christians and ministers as they seek to hear God speak through the Bible, apply the message of the Bible to the modern context, and communicate the message of the Bible to those who need a word from God. The Lion Roars: A Guide for the Interpretation of the Book of Amos supplements Ears to Hear by illustrating the principles, methods, and procedures introduced in that guide through practicing them on the Book of Amos. . Biblical interpretation is best learned by practice. The Book of Amos has been chosen because it is a manageable study that provides ample material for illustrating the methods described in Ears to Hear as they are applied to an Old Testament prophetic book. The first chapter contains my introductory study of the Book of Amos and illustrates the method and procedures introduced in Unit Two of Ears to Hear. Chapters Two through Thirteen contain my interpretations of the individual passages in the Book of Amos and illustrate the methods and procedures introduced in Units Three through Six of Ears to Hear.
