Description

The ministry of Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi is a record of how God deals with people he has restored as they try to translate their basic loyalty to him into practical action. Restoring their temple and the physical trappings of their ravaged kingdom was not an end in itself. God was, and is, primarily interested in obedient minds and wills in people who have a heart for God.

Review quote

"The term 'Minor Prophets' may suggest they are unimportant, which is anything but true. This exposition is really first-class. John Mackay focuses on the text's meaning and the books' New Testament fulfilment in Christ. While his Old Testament scholarship is very evident, he avoids technical language. Many of the study questions provide valuable projects for the reader." -- Geoffrey Grogan, Former Principal Emeritus, Glasgow Bible College ". . . eminently readable and soundly evangelical . . . introduction which gives the historical background and explains how the books complement each other . . . study questions . . . aimed at encouraging the reader to think deeply about the message of the text for today . . . Anyone who buys this book will have a treasure house of good things. It will certainly help any preacher and be valuable for personal devotions, but it could also be used for church Bible study groups." -- Michael Bentley, Evangelical Times, May 1995 "Professor Mackay has done it again! This is an excellent piece of work on three 'minor' prophets that are not well known in the church today. Mackay's commentary is a must read for pastors and serious Bible students who want to become familiar with what these three prophets have to say to the church today... this is a fine work." -- John Currid, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
