Bruce Waltke has written three commentaries on the book of Micah. The first was a small commentary that appeared in the Tyndale series together with small commentaries on Obadiah and Jonah. The second was a larger and more technical commentary that appeared in the set on the Minor Prophets edited by Thomas McComiskey. This full-length commentary is one step beyond what appeared in the McComiskey volume. It is technical, and some grasp of Hebrew is recommended in order to get the full benefit of the work. There is no contemporary commentator, however, who is more well-versed in the book of Micah than Bruce Waltke. It is a must-have for serious study of the book. [Full Review]

Grace Theological Seminary Warsaw, Indiana Waltke’s commentary on Micah is the one of the most comprehensive and in-depth works on the subject; it rivals the volume published in the Anchor Bible commentary series. Waltke’s work is much more conservative, employing a grammatico-historical method. The author seeks to determine the “book’s historical context, its text, the meaning of every word and their syntactical relationship, its figures of speech, its rhetorical techniques, and its literary forms” (x). The book is divided in two major parts: introduction and commentary. In the introduction, Waltke discusses preliminary but foundational issues such as historical background, date and authorship, form and structure, and text. Waltke points out that Micah is not identified by his family, as are other prophets, but rather by his place of origin, Moresheth Gath. Since the text is silent regarding other details about Micah, Waltke does not speculate further. The historical background of the book is comprehensively covered. The author sets the stage well by identifying moral corruption from within and the rising Neo-Assyrian Empire from without as the two volatile forces that paint the background of Micah’s ministry and message. The use of primary sources throughout the book is an asset and gives the author added credibility. [Full Review]
