Description: This volume explores a hermeneutical question. The secret of Malachi can be found in a new understanding of the prophet within the narrative as told in the Book of the Twelve. Prophecy is biblical interpretation. Malachi is not a literary figure. As he takes form, he is fallible. As a revelatory communicator, he interprets the situation of Godís people with the story of Jacob from Genesis, but this story, too, needs updating and reinterpretation.
