Zechariah HBBy: Richard D. Phillips
|Publisher||Presbyterian and Reformed|
In this commentary, Richard D. Phillips shows how the book of Zechariah records the prophetic message given to the community that had returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile and charged them with rebuilding the temple and city. He explains that the physical return was meant to prompt a spiritual and theological return to faith in the Lord, and that 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. Phillips illuminates Zechariah as a book whose eschatological perspective is of special value to Christians today who labor for reformation and long for revival.
