What Does the Lord Require: Doing Justice, Loving Kindness, Walking Humbly, written by James C. Howell, is a good Bible study to complete when you want to learn how to live for Christ.

The author expounds on Micah 6:8 and helps us understand how to apply its principles to our day to day life. He starts by giving us some insight into who Micah was and the era in which he wrote this verse. What does the verse mean when it says the Lord requires justice, kindness and humility? Gaining a real understanding of these terms will help you follow the Lord's guidelines for living as a Christian.

There is a guide included in this book for those who want to lead a Bible study group. Using this book would be great in a Sunday School class as well. You can tell the author is a pastor! The book is easy to understand and very organized. I learned not only facts about a book of the Bible but also principles to live by. This is an excellent book to learn from and I will be looking for other books by this author to read!

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Format: Paperback
I recently received a small booklet entitled "What the Lord Requires" by James C. Howell. I received it free from the publisher in order to read and post a review.

This was a very short and simple read. It was theological yet practical in it's look at who was the Prophet Micah and what is behind his statement to "Do Justice, love Mercy and Walk humbly with your God."

The Author did a decent job of detailing the time and scope of the original message and then went into the thoughts behind the three things mentioned in the verse.

Here is what the publisher had to say:

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 today?

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

James C. Howell is Senior Pastor of Myers Park United Methodist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

A mix of good background and application. I highly recommend reading this short work. It will help you deepen your understanding of the book of Micah, and the central text of Micah 6:8.
