Though a plethora of works on Zechariah have been issued in the past several years, few have advanced their arguments with the exegetical and literary excellence that marks this offering by George Klein. Clearly written and skillfully crafted, it will almost certainly rank among the top two or three commentaries that scholars, pastors, and laity alike will find to be reliable and useful in clarifying the message of this rich prophetic book, one particularly relevant to the present day and age of the church.

Praise for the Print Edition
Zechariah is one of the most difficult Old Testament books to interpret. By paying careful attention to the Hebrew text and the insights of a wide range of biblical scholars, George Klein has provided a comprehensive guide to this rich but often enigmatic prophetic book. Pastors and serious Bible students will be greatly enriched by this latest addition to the excellent New American Commentary series.
