This book focuses on the interpretation of Malachi 2:10-16, which censures the lax marital practice of its contemporaries. In particular, Hugenberger investigates Malachi's identification of marriage as a "covenant" in response to recent scholarly challenges to this identification.
Taking the issues raised by Malachi as his point of departure, Hugenberger examines the nature of covenant and oath (including verba solemnia and oath-signs), and, in light of these findings, explores the theory of marriage implied elsewhere in the Old Testament. Included in this investigation are an analysis of the concentric literary structure of Malachi and a study of the Old Testament's ethical perspectives on divorce, polygamy, and sexual fidelity.
An extensive bibliography and indices complete the book.

About the Author:

Gordon P. Hugenberger, M.Div., Ph.D. (C.N.A.A., 1991) is Associate Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, So. Hamilton, Massachusetts, and Senior Pastor of the Lanesville Congregational Church, Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Review:

'Discussions of ancient Near Eastern marriage customs and the nature of covenant give the book a more general interest...'
G.I. Davies, SOTS, 1994.
'...a very substantial study, which deserves careful attention both from students of biblical theology and from social historians of ancient Israel.'
John J. Collins, Journal of Biblical Literature, 1995.
'[The author] has produced a virtual encyclopedia of scholarly opinion on Malachi, ancient Near Eastern covenants, and the concept of marriage in the ancient Near East. His careful attention to Hebrew grammar is also helpful in numerous places. Hugenberger has carefully organized this long work, with its extensive indexes, and he has written it clearly.'
John T. Strong, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 1995.
