In this volume, Max Rogland provides a foundational analysis of the Hebrew text of Haggai and Zechariah 1–8. Distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text, Haggai and Zechariah 1–8 is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Haggai and Zechariah 1–8 also reflects the most recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics. By filling the gap between popular and technical commentaries, the handbook becomes an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

"Students of the Hebrew Bible who are looking for a reliable guide to the exegesis of Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 need this book. It provides insight into the morphology and syntax of these writings without unnecessary terminological clutter. Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 handles text-critical details with accuracy and restraint and illustrates how careful exegesis of the Hebrew text can yield interpretational precision and illumination."

—Richard A. Taylor, Senior Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

“The commentary has a number of strengths. Foremost among them is the care taken throughout the book to analyse every clause in its discourse context. Roglund understands the analytical circle which exists between grammatical description and comprehension of the overall message. As such, the commentary often provides valuable insight into the prophetic message and the rhetorical devices used by the books of Haggai and Zechariah without losing sight of the purpose of the handbook.”

—Jacques E.J. Boulet, Journal of Semitic Studies
