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.

Haddon W. Robinson - Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "If you are planning to preach or teach Micah, then by all means buy this commentary! It will be money well spent!" Tremper Longman III - Westmont College "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." J. I. Packer - Regent 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."
