The International Critical Commentary (ICC):...

The author has taken up in connection with the first two of the immortal Twelve, many questions that concern just as closely the prophetic books. It is especially felt in the Introduction; in fact Harper's introduction to Amos and Hosea is really an introduction to Prophecy as such.

viii PREFACE of illustration, the questions involved in determining the place of Amos in the development of Hebrew thought, the problems of criticism and interpretation which are suggested by the early chapters of Hosea, the text and historical distribution of the chapters now joined together under the name of Micah, the complexity of the data included in the several portions of Zechariah, not to speak of the fragmentary character of Oba-diah, the peculiar phenomena presented in Jonah, and many other equally puzzling but significant aspects of literary and theological inquiry. These facts and problems connect them-selves with every important phase of the Old Testament activity between 900 B. C. and 300 B. C., in other words, with the entire creative period. The books which occupy our attention in this first volume go well together, not only because one follows the other chrono-logically, but also because one supplements the other logically, the two presenting a totality of expression in the light of which each receives a clearer interpretation. It seemed necessary to take up, in connection with these first two of the immortal Twelve, many questions that concern just as closely the others. Especially was the force of this point felt in the Introduction; for an introduction to Amos and Hosea is really an introduction to Prophecy. Nowhere is it more necessary to distinguish sharply between the actual words of an author and those that have been added by later writers than in the case of Amos and Hosea. The his-tory of the Messianic idea, in whatever sense we employ that term, is fundamentally involved in this distinction. Care has been taken, therefore, to keep separate the quite considerable proportion of material ( ascribed by tradition to these authors) which may confidently be treated as of later origin. This in the case of Amos is about one- fifth of the whole, and in the case of Hosea about one- fourth. It is unquestionably the first duty of a commentator to recon-struct the text as best he may. The contributions to the text-criticism of Amos and Hosea, made within two decades, are striking; but not more so than the unanimity with which the more important emendations have received acceptance.
