In most Bibles the period between the Old and the New Testaments is represented by a single blank page which, perhaps, has symbolic significance. ‘From Malachi to Matthew’ has for long remained vague and unfamiliar to many readers of the Scriptures. Many mysteries remain, but in recent times much light has been cast on this whole period. Exciting new insights have been provided by the writings of numbers of scholars and by some remarkable archaeological discoveries. The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls caught the popular imagination and engaged the attention of worldwide scholarship. In this small volume an attempt is made to review these years in the light of recent study and discoveries and in particular to assess the religious contribution made by that rather strange company of men known as ‘the apocalyptists’. The purpose of this book is selective rather than exhaustive, indicating the part which the apocalyptists had to play within the religious development of Judaism and in the preparation of men’s minds for the coming of Christianity.

    I like this book, but feel I should give a caveat to the buyer - it is terribly out of date. Much has changed since 1960, including Martin Hengel's work on Judaism and Hellenism. The very first page of the sample (p. 13) is revealing. Perhaps someone can recommend a more up-to-date survey.

    This is an excellent tool for giving students insight into the "period between the testaments." I have the print edition of this and use it when teaching the "Bethel Series" bible study.
