The Book of Nahum

"Nahum's message is one of judgment but also one of hope and deliverance for God's people. The Northern Kingdom (ten northern tribes) had been totally annihilated by Assyria. Over fifty thousand captives had been dragged away from their homes to other lands. Judah (the two tribes in the south) survived but had lived “under the thumb” of Assyria for a hundred years. Now God promised that soon their oppressor would be destroyed." - Stephen Miller

The Book of Micah

"Micah [was] an unsophisticated young man from the Judean countryside, he never imagined he would rub shoulders with kings, prophets, and priests. He certainly did not expect that he would be God's servant to influence the history of his country. But God sent him to preach, and he obeyed." - Trent Butler
