The book of Amos is full of wordplays, double entendres, pictorial visions, and direct statements of fact and judgement. Smith's job is to address the historical, stylistic and interpretative aspects of Amos; not just what is written, but also how and why the prophecies are recorded. Each chapter ends with him drawing together the interpretative threads arising from the passage.
Mentor commentaries retain a high view of scripture while interacting with other research from differing theological viewpoints.
