In this distinguished commentary, Wolff is concerned to defend Haggai as much more than a "minor" prophet. He was a man whose feet were placed firmly on the ground, one of the dominating figures of the postexilic community, the main instigator of the rebuilding of the Jerusalem temple, and so responsible for inaugurating a new era in Jewish history. This commentary is verse by verse, includes the text written out for the reader, and offers excellent bibliographical information with detailed footnotes. Most appropriate for scholars and academics, rather than for laypeople who do not have a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew. Hans Walter Wolff is emeritus professor of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg.
