For the few of you reading this who have no idea who ‘Harry Amos’ is, let me enlighten you. He is a “fabulous and dashingly handsome” graduate of the University of Warwick with a 2:1 in Philosophy, Politics & Economics. (Thanks Natasha for your input…)

Oh yes – Natasha. She’s my wife. She likes reading, baking, speaking French and working with children. I consider myself extraordinarily blessed to be with my wonderful wife. But enough about her…

I like cycling, fundraising, folk dancing, museums, old video games (I still have nothing newer than a humble PlayStation 2), theatre trips, cuddles…

About the Blog:

‘The Book of Amos’ is about religion and it’s relation to ancient history, literature, philosophy, theology, psychology, politics and economics. The aim is to be fun, interesting, original, accessible for all levels of interest and yet well-researched and fair in presenting other points of view.

Some things that I am interested in, which are likely to become blog posts:

Some “Light Honeymoon-Appropriate Reading”
  • Philosophy & Theology (Obviously)
  • Politics (Of a Left-of-Centre Variety)
  • Economics (Especially Development)
  • History (Particularly Ancient)
  • Psychology/Sociology/Economics/Politics of Religion
  • Poverty Alleviation
  • Anthropology
  • Trying to Find the End of Facebook

Some things I detest in order of magnitude:

  1. Trolls (They Belong in the Dungeon)
  2. Heresies (https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/)
  3. Not Reading a Post Thoroughly Before Commenting

Welcome to the blog – I hope you enjoy your stay! ♥


P.S. The header image at the top of the site is Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 846, a 6th-century manuscript from the Greek version of the Tanakh (“Old Testament”) known as the Septuagint (LXX). Which book is it? The Book of Amos, of course! Specifically Amos 2:6-12. Not the most thrilling of reads, though it made a rather cool and obscure header image for the blog.
