Jonah is a figure of such contemporary features that he could be a member of one of our churches. Moreover, Jonah reminds us that the chief characteristic of redeemed people is not that they never sin, for sadly we still do, but that they are ready to repent of their sin when reminded of God’s grace.

The prophet Micah lived several generations later than Jonah. Whereas God called Jonah to cry out to the wicked idolaters in Nineveh, he called Micah to cry out against the wicked sinners of Jerusalem. Unlike the earlier prophet, who wrestled against God’s gospel message for pagan unbelievers, Micah was brokenhearted in his fervent desire for Jerusalem to repent and believe.

What this means is that a study of Jonah will connect us with our mission to the world. A study of Micah will inform us to face our challenges within today’s church.

As are all the books in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this exposition of Jonah and Micah is accessible to both pastors and lay readers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.


“Rick Phillips is a uniquely gifted expositor, blessed with an astute mind?for opening the biblical text. His skills are obvious in explaining the God- intended meaning of Scripture and showing its life-changing relevance. Distinctly reformed and exegetically sound, this commentary is an invaluable treasure house of what you need to understand the biblical passages of the prophets Jonah and Micah. If you are a preacher, teacher, or an interested reader of Scripture, this book is a must read.”

—Steven J. Lawson

“Richard Phillip integrates sound exegesis, theological orthodoxy, and practical application in this volume. Focusing on grace, without losing a sense of God’s righteousness, he illuminates the familiar story of Jonah and the lesser-known message of Micah. Expositors of Micah will be particularly pleased to find this sadly neglected prophet expounded in depth.”?

—Paul R. House

“Much more than just insightful comments on the Scripture, these are?true expositions of the prophetic words speaking with prophetic power. Each of these expositions takes us into the very heart of grace. In Jonah, Phillips shows that the great challenge is not simply to believe the gospel of grace, but to live it in reaching out to the lost. In Micah, we are presented with the mystery of great divine judgment against his people’s sin and the astounding grace of a God who pardons our sins and casts them into the depth of the sea.”

—Mark E. Ross
