OT Library Commentary: Micah (Daniel L. Smith-Christopher) (2015)
Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.
For even more information, see this article.
Note: This volume should not be confused with the 1976 commentary on Micah by James L. Mays.
One of the Twelve Minor Prophetic books, the book of Micah contains the famous quote “what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8). However, many of us do not know the circumstances that led the prophet to these famous words.
This serious commentary by Daniel Smith-Christopher analyzes the historical, social, and literary context of the book of Micah. Smith-Christopher presents a challenging perspective on Micah, who is here represented as an angry opposition figure to King Hezekiah and the Jerusalem elite. In Micah, we hear from those Judeans who suffered Assyrian, and later Babylonian, force but who hold Jerusalem’s military folly to blame as much as the Empires of his day. Smith-Christopher’s fresh reading of Micah is a stimulating addition to the Old Testament Library that will well serve both the academy and the church.
About the Old Testament Library Series:
The Old Testament Library is one of the most respected commentary series produced in the last 50 years. As with any series that reaches this level of respectability, it is comprehensive in scope while acknowledging that it is not exhaustive. Introductory matters cover historical concerns, cultural issues, the reception of the text, the integrity of the text, and other interpretive issues.
Each commentary provides a verse-by-verse analysis of critical exegetical matters that are then synthesized into a progressively building understanding of the text and interpretation. This includes analysis of problems in history, word meaning, syntactical and grammatical issues, text history, and many other exegetically relevant issues. Nevertheless, despite the breadth of their scope, volumes in the series remain relatively compact in comparison to series who share its aims and scope.
