This article attempts to relate a literary reading from the book of Amos to the post-war situation of Guatemala. It begins by describing the precarious context of that Central American country and then presents the theoretical contributions of Nussbaum and Brueggemann to a relevant literary reading of the prophetic text. This article suggests that situating a reading in the seam between 9:10 and 9:11 can offer an opportunity to look back at the past violence as well as forward to the hope of a different tomorrow.
