Review:

This is a helpful exposition of the last book in the Old Testament, the book of Malachi.

In keeping with the approach of other volumes in the Bible Speaks Today series, it is not a detailed verse-by-verse commentary, but contains reflections on the main points of each chapter of Malachi.

One of Peter Adam's priorities is to show how Malachi, (which he understands to be the prophet's own personal name, and dates to somewhere between 460 and 400 B.C., close to the time of the ministry of Ezra and Nehemiah) is addressed to the whole community of Israel, and not just to individuals. He does this well, demonstrating how relevant Malachi is to the contemporary church.

I recommend this addition.
