In this newest installment to the Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible series, Terry Eddinger provides a practical guide for students and teachers working through the Hebrew text of Malachi. Eddinger addresses the grammatical and syntactical issues within the final book of the minor prophets, while drawing out the larger narrative of the text through analysis of how words and phrases function in larger clauses and paragraphs. Taking the work of translation and interpretation one step further, Malachi follows the poetic prose of the book's catechetical dialogue in order to provide greater understanding of the prophet's specific literary structure. Including chapter-specific keywords and an exhaustive linguistic glossary, Eddinger provides a valuable resource for all to better capture the meaning inherent in this underutilized book.

Reviews"…students of Malachi will want to make use of this book for years to come."
— Abram K-J, Words on the Word
"…the volume would be quite useful to a student who wants to further her or his Hebrew knowledge through self-study, and who needs more guidance and explanation of language issues than commentaries give."
— Christopher B. Hays, Fuller Theological Seminary, Religious Studies Review
