The Book of Zechariah records the prophetic message of Zechariah to the community that had returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile and was charged with rebuilding the temple and city. The physical return was meant to prompt a spiritual and theological return to faith in the Lord.
Zechariah called the people to such a true return and reassured them of the Lord’s willingness to receive them and restore to them the promised blessings. It is a book whose eschatological perspective is of special value to Christians today who labor for reformation and long for revival.

Rick Phillips has produced a gem of a book on the prophet Zechariah! It is popular in its presentation but reflects a wide reading in Puritan theology, critical commentaries, and conservative Reformed writers. In a word, it has all the hallmarks of an edifying commentary: it is historically sensitive, and it is robustly theological, Christological, and appropriately practical. Phillips reminds us in his methodology that what God has done and will do for the people of God always precedes what God expects of his people. I wholeheartedly commend this work for pastors and lay people.
