Item description for MICAH (OTL) (Old Testament Library) by Mays & James Luther Mays...
Overview The Old Testament Library is a scholarly treatment of the Hebrew Bible. This volume on Micah by James Luther Mays begins with an introductory section which discusses the form of the book, the person of Micah and the message of the text. The commentary is based on linguistic and historical research and is geared towards the scholar.
This much-needed commentary provides an authoritative guide to a better understanding of the often-neglected book of Micah. It gives insight into the individual sayings of Micah, to the way they were understood and used as they were gathered into the growing collection, and to their role in the final form of the document. "I am convinced," says Dr. Mays, that Micah "is not just a collection of prophetic sayings, but is the outcome of a history of prophetic proclamations and is itself, in its final form, prophecy."
The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.
