In these illuminating translations and commentaries, Carol Meyers and Eric Meyers consider the book of Haggai and the book of Zechariah in a linguistic, social, and historical context. They underscore the literary artistry, the political acumen, and the prophetic authority of these fascinating volumes that proved so vital to the survival of Israel and the preservation of the Jewish faith.
Perhaps uniquely qualified for this work because of their backgrounds in biblical archaeology and the social sciences, they employ the highest standards of philological, literary, and historical research, they shed light on many enigmatic passages and offer an entirely new perspective on the history of Israel and its religion in the Persian period.
