Written for pastors and layperson, Richard D. Phillips's Zechariah - Reformed Expository Commentary, demonstrates how the book of Zechariah records the prophetic message given to the community that had returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile and charged them with rebuilding the temple and city.
Phillips reminds us that what God has done and will do for the people of God always precedes what God expects of His people. He explains that the physical return was meant to prompt a spiritual and theological return to faith in the Lord, and that Zechariah called the people to such a true return and reassured them of the Lord's willingness to receive them and restore to them the promised blessings.
