From the Paper:

"Usually referred to as the minor prophets, Micah, Isaiah, Amos and Hosea were Biblical realists who never forgot for an instant about the faithless and dangerous world in which they lived and worked. Unlike those sometimes called "heathens," these four prophets, whose words of wisdom can be found in their various books in the Old Testament, lived their entire lives in a tightly-knit social culture and were constantly focused upon the thoughts and behaviors of the common people that existed around them. The religious gifts which God (Jehovah) had given them and their personal relationship with Him could be understood as endowments that must be given back to the people of their times and to the world of practical affairs, being the ordinary happenings of human experience as they occurred in the social setting. But most importantly, these four minor prophets were highly concerned about spending their individual lives with God who had given life to themselves and their families which in essence greatly affected the social atmosphere of all involved."
