Eerdmans Author Interviews: Mignon R. Jacobs on The Books of Haggai and Malachi

Mignon Jacobs’s new commentary, The Books of Haggai and Malachi (NICOT) offers a clear and insightful interpretation of the text. She covers traditional questions while also highlighting themes that are especially relevant to contemporary concerns, such as hearing the prophetic word in the midst of social and political upheaval.

“Mignon Jacobs offers fresh readings of Haggai and Malachi for pastors and students. Her work has an accessible style, and the voluminous footnotes list alternative positions within the scholarly discussions. Her introductions to these prophets emphasize their social location at different points in the Persian period, and her exegetical treatments in the commentary proper include extensive exploration of biblical contexts to explain the concepts, phrases, and idioms that shape the message.”
