Hello--thanks for your question,
A few of our databases may be helpful in getting you started: I searched for Amos, but you could try any specific prophet or just "prophets."
EBSCOHost Academic Search Elite Search "Amos" AND "prophets"
Try a search for "Amos" but also look on the left-hand side under "Subjects." Click on this drop-down menu and you'll be able to narrow down your results to "Bible (ot) amos --criticism & interpretation"
You can also browse by Scripture at the top of the main search page.
Credo is an online collection of many different reference sources, and a good place to start as well. If you search for "Amos" and then limit the results to "Religion" on the left-hand side, you will get many relevant results. You can then narrow it down even further by selecting "Biography" or "More..." and "Religious Text" etc.
"Prophecy and the Biblical Prophets" by John F. A. Sawyer (You may need to log-in with your Marywood ID and Password in order to access the link.
Tip: You can "search within" the ebook for passages referencing Amos by clicking on the magnifying glass symbol.
You can search for the entire eBook Collection here.
I did a search for "Amos + prophet" and limited the results to Academic Journals. There are 21 results here.
Finally, as you get more specific, you might want to try JSTOR.
I tried in Advanced Search: "Amos" AND "Prophets" AND "Bible" and Narrowed by: "Articles" and "Religion" under Disciplines. You can add any other keywords or topics to narrow it down by Adding a Field.
Good luck! Let me know if this is helpful or if you require further assistance.
