Summary

Summary

Micah, the Hebrew prophet, unwaveringly spoke God's message to Israel. His was a message filled with judgment, but also laced with the promise of redemption. Micah combines poetic complexity and literary sophistication to compel his audience to respond. And, now, through an exacting linguistic and literary analysis of the biblical text, coauthors Francis I. Andersen and David Noel Freedman explain what Micah meant to his contemporaries, as well as what his message means to readers today.


Author Notes

David Noel Freedman is a professor of the Hebrew Bible at the University of California, San Diego, and lives in La Jolla, California.
