Product Description

In this masterful commentary, respected biblical scholar Bruce Waltke carefully interprets the message of the prophet Micah, building a bridge between Micah's ancient world and our life today.

Waltke's A Commentary on Micah quickly distinguishes itself from other commentaries on this book by displaying an unprecedented exegetical thoroughness, an expert understanding of historical context, and a keen interest in illuminating the contribution of Micah to Christian theology.

Tackling hard questions about date and authorship, Waltke contends that Micah himself wrote and edited the nineteen sermons comprising the book. Waltke's clear analytical outline leads readers through the three cycles of Micah, each beginning with an oracle of doom and ending with an oracle of hope, decisively showing that hope wins over doom.

Learned yet amazingly accessible, combining scholarly erudition with passion for Micah's contemporary relevance, this book will well serve teachers, pastors, and students alike.

Endorsements

If you are planning to preach or teach Micah, then by all means buy this commentary! It will be money well spent!
-Haddon W. Robinson
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

No one knows the prophecy of Micah more thoroughly than Bruce Waltke. No one is more deeply ingrained in the secondary literature that discusses and debates this prophet. No one is better positioned to be a helpful guide to the correct interpretation and application of this marvelous book. It's rare when a commentary is helpful to scholars, clergy, and laypeople alike, but Waltke has accomplished this masterfully.
-Tremper Longman III
Westmont College

This commentary offers scrupulously full and thorough exegesis, leading to meticulous canonical exposition of God's ongoing ways in judgment and mercy as he calls his people to radical repentance and robust hope. Here is biblical theology of a very high order indeed.
-J. I. Packer
Regent College
