Veteran pastor and scholar James C. Howell skillfully unpacks one of the most powerful verses in the Old Testament, Micah 6:8: "What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" In a concise yet engaging manner, Howell illuminates the original context in which this verse was written, asking questions such as:

  • Who was Micah?
  • What was going on when he spoke?
  • How did his listeners receive what he said—and how do we?
  • Who is this God who requires?
  • What might justice, kindness, and humility look like for us?

Howell draws his readers into the original experience of the prophet's audience, and demonstrates how Micah's message can still guide us in our lives today.

A Study Guide is also included in this book, making it a wonderful resource for both group and individual use.
