Malachi Then and Now: An Expository Commentary Based on Detailed Exegetical Analysis
Ross, Allen P.
“I am not aware of any other work quite like this one. Professor Ross writes with two readers in mind: the Hebrew student and the Bible expositor. The result combines the best of a Hebrew class, sitting under a master tutor explaining the nuances of grammar and syntax and their relevance for understanding a text, with the best of a pastors conference, sitting under a seasoned expositor with a passion for the church and the modern-day relevance of this fairly obscure Old Testament book. In the process, Ross carefully explains how to go from one stage to the next, each step in the process building on the previous one. This is a rich resource and I highly recommend it.”See All

“Professor Rosss commentary on Malachi distinctively sets out to fulfill two purposes: to serve as a guide in the art of exegesis and interpretation for students of the Hebrew Bible, and to serve as a commentary on a book of the Old Testament for expository preachers. It accomplishes both tasks superbly. Whether one is looking for practical guidance in biblical hermeneutics or preparing to preach through Malachi, this commentary will be a valuable resource and guide.”See All

A rich and satisfying commentary on Malachi that unfolds its powerful message. Since Malachi deals with topics such as money, marriage, worship, and the love of God, contemporary Christians can learn much from this ancient book. In addition to commenting on the book of Malachi, this volume shows how to develop biblical expositions from a solid exegetical analysis of the text. "I have chosen the book of Malachi," writes the author, "because it is short and can be easily expounded in a short series, and because it has a good variety of forms and constructions that provide test cases for a practicum in exegesis. But most of all, because the messages recorded here are needed just as much today as in Malachi's day."
