Amos was the first prophet to emphasise justice and compassion [Amos, by Armstrong,K]
     Full Idea: Amos was the first prophet to emphasise social justice and compassion.
     From: report of Amos (30: Book of Amos [c.740 BCE]) by Karen Armstrong - A History of God
     A reaction: It increasingly strikes me that early religious thinkers were actually working out the rules for good community living, but seeing them through the distorting spectacles of religion as a means to post-life salvation.
