Item description for A Commentary on Micah by Bruce Waltke...
Overview 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 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Commentary on Micah?
Watlke at his best Mar 21, 2007
This book was born out of Waltke's deep desire to communicate the message of Micah. Originally he had wanted to write it in the Baker series commentaries, and realized that the information that he had was too large, and simplified it for the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the Minor Prophets.
There is no better commentary so far that deals with the book of Micah from an evangelical perspective.
