Haggai, Zechariah & Malachi
God's Restored People
These people have a heart for God
Restoring the temple
Loyalty to God and practical action
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.

People who looked at this item also looked at:
"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, (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author
"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, Carl McMurray Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina
