Description

In this commentary on Haggai and Malachi, Mignon Jacobs offers clear and insightful interpretation of the text while high-lighting themes that are especially relevant to contemporary concerns, such as honoring or dishonoring God, the responsi­bilities of leaders, 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.
