On Sale: The Books of Haggai and Malachi (NICOT)

Jacobs, Haggai, MalachiFor a limited time Logos has Mignon Jacob’s volume on the Books of Haggai and Malachi in the NICOT series for only $9.99. This is  a 400+ page commentary on two overlook Old Testament prophets. Mignon is Professor of Old Testament Studies at Ashland Theological Seminary.

Here is the conclusion to my review from December of 2017:

Jacobs has contributed a serious exegetical commentary on two of the neglected books of the Hebrew Bible. It is a worthy successor to Verhoef’s commentary in the NICOT series and will be a standard commentary on Haggai and Malachi for many years to come. Some readers might find fault with the lack of theological reflection, especially since that style of commentary has become increasingly popular in recent years. Jacobs is true to her method and written a fine exegetical commentary which will provide the details for the kind of theological reflection on socio-political situation of the post-exilic community which allows pastors and teachers to address modern issues in specific cultural contexts.
