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

Quickly distinguishing itself from other commentaries on Micah, this volume displays an unprecedented exegetical thoroughness, an expert understanding of historical context, and a keen interest in illuminating the contribution of Micah to Christian theology. Waltke's discussion of the book's oracles of hope reveals its overall effect — to escalate the hope of both Israel and the Christian church in the appearance of God's kingdom in history.

Learned yet accessible, this is an ideal commentary on Micah for teachers, pastors, and students alike.

I am an undergraduate Theology student.
I used this book in cooperation with an array of other commentaries for an exegesis paper on Micah 4:1-5.
Needless to say this was my favorite resource along with Wolff, whom Waltke compliments well.
Don't hesitate to add this book to your collection!
