The Books of Haggai and Malachi provides solid textual exposition from a respected Old Testament scholar. Presenting a fresh, careful reading of Haggai and Malachi, Mignon R. Jacobs engages with the latest research to highlight relevant themes of contemporary concern, including honoring and dishonoring God, the responsibilities of leadership, questioning God, and hearing the prophetic word in challenging times.
Engaging with the latest scholarship, Jacobs provides a thorough introduction to both prophets in which she addresses questions of authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology, followed by a new translation of the biblical text and a verse-by-verse commentary. With intertextual discussions about key aspects of the text and attention to competing perspectives, this commentary offers a rich new interpretation of Haggai and Malachi.
