Summary Terence E. Fretheim explores themes of indictment, judgment, and salvation in Hosea-Micah. The indictment against the people of God especially involves issues of abuse of the poor and needy and idolatry. The effects of such behaviors are often horrendous in their severity. While God is often the subject of such judgments the consequences, like fruit, grow out of the deed itself. Issues of indictment and judgment are not finally ends in themselves, but in the service of the salvation of God.
