Overview

In this book, a respected Old Testament scholar, psychologist, and religious educator come together to reflect on the three elements of Micah 6:8. How do the Scriptures require us to respond to the problems of the real world? How can we maintain love in our ministrations to others? How can we speak with real authority while still keeping our humility? The book is geared to assist believers to see how Micah 6:8 helps to provide a convergence point for praxis and spirituality.
