The cover of this commentary highlights the book as follows: "Learned yet amazingly accessible, combining scholarly erudition with passion for Micah's contemporary relevance, this commentary will well serve teachers, pastors and students alike." However, it is not for the faint of heart. That being said, the breadth and depth of detail that is included in this work, especially in terms of the textual and grammatical discussions, make this an invaluable resource for the serious student and those wanting to do a detailed study of Micah.
