  • Scope and Contents

    These recordings were created during a series of ten lectures given by Nahum Sarna in January of 1995 at the Center for Jewish Education in Boca Raton, Florida. The topic of the lectures is the biblical prophet Amos. In these lectures Sarna covers both the linguistic aspects of the text and the historical background. Some recordings include a question and answer session. These lectures reportedly have similar content to a course called The Book of Amos, which Sarna taught during his years at Brandeis University.
