Micah – The Other Side of Protest
Micah 7 is written from a different point of view than the rest of the prophetic book. In chapter 7, Micah writes from the position of a person living in an oppressive society, rather than as a prophet who protests against oppression and injustice, as he does in chapters 1–6. Micah 7 thus provides us with resources to face up to difficult situations as believers.
