Haggai and Malachi, two postexilic minor prophets, adressed many practical issues that concern God's people even today: attitudes, priorities, the use of money, divorce, Christ's second coming and others. In Haggai, the people listen to God's message and are encouraged; but in Malachi, they argue with the Lord. Yet both books offer important lessons for the church and Christian families. Dr. Wolf supplies helpful, concise, and valuable information for the Bible student at any level, discussing significant questions and issues and providing section-by-section commentary on the texts of the two prophecies.
