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.
New International Commentary on the Old Testament - Series Editor: Robert L. Hubbard Jr.
Maneuvering through Levitical laws, bloodshed in Joshua, or Daniel's apocalyptic visions, sincere readers often wonder what the Old Testament means and how it can be the Word of God. For several decades the New International Commentary on the Old Testament has helped countless people traverse this difficult literary terrain.
All the NICOT volumes combine superior scholarship, an evangelical view of Scripture as the Word of God, and concern for the life of faith today. Each volume features an extensive introduction treating the biblical book's authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. The author's own translation of the original Hebrew and verse-by-verse commentary follow. The commentary itself carefully balances coverage of technical matters with exposition of the biblical text's theology and implications.
