In this commentary on Haggai and Malachi, Mignon Jacobs offers clear and insightful interpretation of the text while highlighting themes that are especially relevant to contemporary concerns, such as honoring or dishonoring God, the responsibilities of leaders, questioning God, and hearing the prophetic word in challenging times.

Engaging with the latest scholarship, Jacobs provides a thorough introduction to both prophets in which she addresses questions of authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology, followed by a new translation of the biblical text and a verse-by-verse commentary. With intertextual discussions about key aspects of the text and attention to competing perspectives, this commentary offers a rich new interpretation of Haggai and Malachi.

While I applaud the NICOT editors for updating a few older volumes in the series, I am a little surprised to see this one come out while so many of the Old Testament books have not been covered yet. That said, this commentary is exceptional, and cuts new ground on two often overlooked books of the Old Testament, and goes beyond the analysis of of the texts to how propehtic texts relate to contemporary church and society.
