Publisher's Description

"There is nothing else in English that compares with Luz's commentary; it is the best " -- James M. Robinson "This volume is a joy to read." -- Schuyler Brown "It is an outstanding commentary, the first to use the Wirkungsge-schichte, the understanding of the text throughout the centuries, to interpret the text itself." --Eduard Schweizer

    The past review does not take into account the full thrust of Wolff's commentary, and blatantly misrepresents the purpose of the commentary. There is this idea prevalent among the faithful that if a scholar dates a book (or in this case certain parts of a book) to a later period than what has either been traditionally thought or what the text itself claims (Jonah, Daniel, etc.) then their reasoning must be that prophecy is not true and cannot happen. In my experience this position is put into the mouth of scholars (with the exception of a few) in general and does not represent their argument. Here in Wolff's commentary on Micah, "The book of Micah reflects the turbulence of several centuries, for only a small part of the prophetic sayings it presents to its readers are from Micah of Moresheth, who saw clouds of doom as early as the neo-Assyrian era. The book also contains sayings from the neo-Babylonian period, a time when the storm broke and new prophetic voices accompanied the people through their experience of catastrophe. Finally, we recognize texts from a period in which an Israelite remnant in the Persian Empire was gathered together and painfully reconstituted-texts in which the prophetic voice in part also addressed itself to nations surrounding Israel." (1) It is clear from this selection alone that (1) Wolff does think that at least some of Micah was written by Micah of Moresheth, although not all; (2) that there were 'prophetic' voices at the time comforting the people during distress.

    I highly recommend this commentary on Micah. I am extremely glad that I purchased it from this website. You cannot beat the price and the high quality and authority of this commentary cannot go ignored, as the review mentioned has done.

    Author doesn't believe that Micah really wrote most the book that bears his name and that colors his interpretation. Wolff doesn't believe that true prophecy is possible and so misses the whole point.
