In this Anchor Bible commentary on the prophetic book of Malachi, Andrew E. Hill illuminates and enlivens some of the neglected propheciesprophecies that are brimming with divine wrath over Israel's religious and social sins, but laced with the promise of a new day. This book is often overlooked by readers because it comes last in the Old Testament and because Malachi is a minor prophet. Yet his passionate proclamations and the significance of what he had to say to his people capture the attention of even the casual reader. The message of Malachi came at a time of cultural and religious rethinking for Israel (roughly 500 B.C.E), when God's people were scattered throughout the Near East. Most were living in Mesopotamia under Persian rule. They could easily have disappeared from history had it not been for this prophetic call to repentance. In his fresh, new translation of this brief prophetic book, along with his notes and comments, Hill shows why we should pay attention to Malachi as God's spokesperson. He places the book in its historical context to offer us new insights and to better interpret the original meaning of the text. Aided by a wonderful insert filled with photographs, line art, and maps, Hill provides all the necessary details for the reader to understand and appreciate Malachi.
