The endeavor to make the significance of Amos and Hosea real and vital, both to teachers of young adults and to young adults themselves, has made the preparation of this thesis a challenging work. The primary purpose has been to provide helpful and reliable information and to suggest conclusions concerning these great pioneering minds of the eighth century B. C., together with presentations of some practical procedures and techniques which might he used in teaching the materials to which reference has been made and which have been included in the main body of the thesis. It has been assumed that too often Biblical materials have seemed unapproachable to modern young adult groups. Like- wise, their teachers are frequently unaware of the great opportunities and challenging possibilities for exploring important truths and teaching the most powerful and pertinent lessons to be found anywhere that are available to them in the pages of the Bible supplemented by the findings of the best scholar- ship of the ages. Therefore, it has been one of the chief aims of this dissertation to call attention to these prevalent attitudes and misconceptions and to seek to arouse enthusiasm for new exploration and discovery in this realm so many times neglected and by-passed. It naturally follows that an additional goal sought by this discourse has been to bring inspiration and revelation through the specific studies of Amos and Hosea which would create a desire for further and continued quest for the riches contained in the Old and New Testaments which would be used as foundation and background for the work of young adults in our churches.
