Celebrating faculty’s book publishing

Congratulations to Dr. Stephen Dempster on publishing a new book this year!

Dr. Dempster’s book Micah is a distinctively theological take on the biblical book of Micah. Readers learn a great deal about God: He is a mighty God who controls the nations, yet He is also concerned with everyday matters like equity, poverty, and care for widows and orphans. In presenting this transcendent-yet-immanent God, Micah’s message revolves around themes of justice, judgment, and salvation that continue to carry great significance today.

In this theological commentary on the book of Micah, Dr. Dempster places the text in conversation with the larger story of Scripture. After discussing questions of structure and authorship in his introduction, Dempster systematically works through the text, drawing links to the broader biblical story throughout. In the second part of his commentary Dempster offers theological discussion that further explicates the most significant themes in Micah and their applicability to today’s Christians.

Dr. Stephen Dempster is a Professor of Religious Studies. You can purchase his book on amazon.ca or in the Crandall bookstore.

PUBLIC LECTURE EVENT: Dr. Dempster will be speaking at a Public Lecture on February 1 at 7pm at Crandall University.
