Book Information

The Book of Zechariah records the prophetic message of Zechariah to the community that had returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile and was charged with rebuilding the temple and city. The physical return was meant to prompt a spiritual and theological return to faith in the Lord. 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. It is a book whose eschatological perspective is of special value to Christians today who labor for reformation and long for revival.

Readers of this blog will notice that most of the commentaries listed here were also listed as the top 5 on the book of Haggai. The one difference is the volume in the number 1 slot. Richard Phillips commentary on Zechariah combines pastoral sensitivity with scholarly depth, all the while remaining accessible to laymen. That is a considerable feat with a book as difficult as Zechariah. Highly recommended. [Full Review]

I love the format. This is the only one I have read from this series but I applaud those who put together this series of expositional commentaries. Covering the whole book and helping with interpretation, but in a way focused on application and teaching. The pastor will find much help here. The average layman will find a good resource to learn and grow that is focused around a book of the Bible. I can easily see this as a great book to have on a church library shelf (especially Reformed types of churches). I must confess I did almost return this book to the library after the first few chapters, not thinking much of it. But I am glad I plowed on. While perhaps not always agreeing with his analysis of the text, he sparked many thoughts and helped much in application.
