Haggai/Zechariah, which is part of the NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the message of these two prophets who challenged and encouraged the people of God after the return from Babylon can have the same powerful impact on the community of faith today.
- Koorong

The NIV Application Commentary SeriesThe setting: Jerusalem. Recently returned from Babylonian captivity, the Jews are occupied with personal pursuits while the temple of Yahweh lies in ruins. To the prophets Haggai and Zechariah falls the task of calling God's people to their forgotten priority: rebuilding his house. Heeding prophetic admonition, the people overcome the obstacles that face them and prosper in their work??thanks largely to the vision and encouragement of the prophets.The books of Haggai and Zechariah represent a golden period in Old Testament history, but they are often overlooked. Yet these two minor prophets speak a major message to the church today. It is one that calls us, as a community of faith, to the priority of God's house, and inspires us with glimpses of its future glory.Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Mark J. Boda shares perspectives on Haggai and Zechariah that reveal their enduring relevance for our twenty-first-century lives.Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don?t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable??but the job is only half done!The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.?This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible's timeless message speak to this generation.BILLY GRAHAMSome commentaries build walls that isolate you back in the ancient world. The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary lift??and the series does so concisely, clearly, and accurately. No wasted words or academic detours??just solid help and practical truth!?WARREN W. WIERSBE

essential commentary
5 stars By Daniel, Dec 18 2015
This commentary by Mark Boda on Haggai and Zechariah is the only commentary on Zechariah I have seen that spends a necessary amount of time in chapters 9-14. 

Mark takes the view that these chapters are first and forrmost fulfilled in Jesus. 

Messiah enters 9:9-10 - Mk 11:1-11
Covenant established 9:11 - Mk 14:24
Messiah rejected 11:4-17 - Matt 27:51-53
Messiah betrayed 11:12-13 - Mk 14:10-11
Messiah deserted 13:7 - Mk 14:26-31
Messiah killed 12:10 - Jn 19:28-37
Mourning 12:11-14 - Lk 23:27
Resurrection 14:3-5 Matt 27:51-53

Mark explains there is a now and not yet approach to these chapters as the 5 chapters can also be discerned in Revelation.

All in all, its a solid commentary, exegetically and applicably. One of the best in the NIV commentary series. All serious students studying Zechariah should purchase this commentary.

I unfortunately haven't had time to go through the notes on Haggai, but the notes on Zechariah make this book worth buying.
