In this International Theological Commentary on the book of Micah, Mark Gignilliat begins by reflecting upon the nature of such commentary in relation to biblical interpretation, before situating Micah within current within current critical engagement of the book on the book of the Twelve and focusing specifically on Micah’s relation with Jonah and Nahum.
The main body of this volume is devoted to the interpretation and exegesis of Micah, engaging widely with theological discourse, biblical commentary and the work of engaging widely with theologians and biblical scholars. Gignilliat addresses literary issues involving the structure, grammar, and textual variants of given passages and—in keeping with the goals of the International Theological Commentary—provides analysis of Scripture’s literal sense in relation to its theological subject matter. This volume offers scholars, clergy and lay readers alike a unique combination of critical exegesis and rigorous theological interpretation.
A very fine, fresh contribution to this new series. Micah is the subject of a detailed and careful commentary treatment, combined with a running discussion of how biblical texts do theology. Gignilliat is to be congratulated on ploughing venerable terrain with up-to-date critical tools and sensitivity.
