Latter Prophets: Amos, Hosea, Micah
The prophets bring words of criticism and warning. They are frequently abrasive and caustic as they try to force the people to face their (perceived) sins.
Originally a shepherd from Tekoa, Amos prophesied in Israel during the reign of King Jeroboam II. Though expelled from his base in Bethel and forced to return to Judah, he continued his prophesies against the northern kingdom from Judah.
