Haggai - An Introduction

Good writers help you get into the story (or article) by giving you a sense of the scene—they try to help you feel and smell and hear and be the story. They use words—lots of them, or few of them—to give you a sense of being ‘in’ the story. A really simple way of analyzing this is to ask ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘where’, as you come to a piece of writing. And the Bible is no different—as the greatest piece of literature, and the very revelation of God—each of its books can be approached this way. As we start a short series on Haggai, these observations are all answered in the first verse. In a very few words, Haggai sets the scene for us.
