The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible (Story #17): A Farmer and a Plumb Line

“He didn’t look like much. He was a farmer. He tended some sheep and watched over a grove of fig trees. … And then—for some reason only God knows—[he] was called to go to his northern cousins and deliver a message.”1 This is the story of Amos, the focus of the 17th story in the 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible series.
