Reformed Expository Commentary: Zephaniah, Haggai, Malachi

P&R 2018

To the people of Judah, distressed by changing political realities, it seemed that God had lost control of the situation. Zephaniah warned of imminent judgment and pointed to hope close at hand: God is both Judge and a Refuge from judgment. Haggai declared that God’s struggling people needed to reorder their priorities and invest in building the Lord’s house so that God’s renewed presence in their midst would bring renewed blessing. Malachi, when doubt of the Lord’s love and watchfulness led the people into sin and distress, addressed their concerns and failings one by one. God would not abandon those who feared him, despite a history of rebellion against him.

Practical, devotional, and expositional, this commentary delves into the ways these three prophets point us to the sufferings of Christ, the forgiveness of God, and anticipated glories to come.

Praise for the Print Edition

Duguid and Harmon always keep Christ central and let grace be as delightful as it is—and their expositions aggravatingly challenge our attitudes and assumptions and, in the process, meddle with our cherished idols and bogus religion.

—Dale Ralph Davis, Minister-in-Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

The authors of this volume on Zephaniah, Haggai, and Malachi are to be commended for their exposition of these three prophetical books. In keeping with the REC series’ goal, they expound the message of the prophets, reflect theologically on what the Spirit of God intends to communicate to the body of Christ in every age, make insightful comments on the redemptive-historical progression of the unfolding of the Father’s purposes, and encourage God’s people to respond to the Spirit appropriately and practically by their faithful exposition of God’s Word.

—Willem A. VanGemeren, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

In their clear and convicting expositions of Zephaniah, Haggai, and Malachi, Duguid and Harmon show how these neglected books of the Bible are both relevant and refreshing. Through the lens of the gospel, they showcase how themes like repentance and restoration, election and hope, and judgment and mercy come together in the cross and consummation of Christ. Every pastor who seeks to teach the whole counsel of God’s ever-living and always-active Word should have this splendid commentary in his library.

—Douglas Sean O’Donnell, Senior Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Elgin, Illinois
