Micah the Prophet & John Denver

Each year I teach on the book of Micah as we cover the minor prophets in my Old Testament survey class. In general, we don’t read or know much about these “minor” prophets. This includes Micah.

In particular was speaking to the small towns “out in the country,” if you will (what they called the Shephelah). And, so, to introduce this small book, I always kick off with John Denver’s “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.” I am no country music fan, but I love this song.

And, hopefully, some students will now remember even a little about the prophet Micah.
