Haggai and Malachi are two significant but sometimes marginalized books. The New International Commentary: Haggai and Malachi by Pieter A. Verhoef is a comprehensive, critical interpretation and explanation of these two books in terms of how their messages are connected to today’s church.
In his introductions to these books, Verhoef includes information on context, literary aspects, theology, and the message itself. Along the way, he gathers compelling support for the reliability of these two books and contrasts his findings with background information from the ancient Near East, the Old Testament as a whole, and academic research past and current. In the midst of his excellent scholarship, Verhoef does not forget his pastoral experience—this commentary is accessible to Bible readers of all levels of experience.
Also available is the entire New International Commentary on the Old Testament: 23 Volumes.
